Well... I just had a ``critical update'' so tlmgr was being updated.
There was an apparent hang and I again noticed that Little Snitch was
periodically submitting CrashReport logs. Once I killed the daemon
everything continued properly with TLU's update of tlmgr. I'm guessing
that the tlmgr update script is using a server that Little Snitch
doesn't know about and also Little Snitch isn't catching the request
(fast enough?) and crashing with each request rather than throwing up
a dialog box. I've now changed the Little Snitch rule to allow
wget.universal-darwin to use any server on port 80 rather than the
limited list it had before. Hopefully that will ``fix'' the problem.
