My man.conf file also contains that (+others, e.g. X11) and,

is at the bottom of the file. I know I didn't change that so did the
TeX i-install put it there when I re-installed TeX after doing an
Archive & Install of Tiger(r).
Notice that I've reduced the number of redundant r's at the end of
Tiger; I used to call it Tigerrrr. It is working much better for me
now that I really cleaned up after my old Virex. I've noticed two
occasional glitches: once in a while system usage go to 70-90% for a
period and everything else is locked up and a similar thing happens
with the mds process (which is `niced' but, as has been noted here,
that doesn't mean to much). I have no man page for mds although
mdimport, etc., do ahve man pages. Does anyone know what mds does?
I'd almost guess it is the server for a Spotlight search but...
