mds: (Warning) FMW: event:1 had an arg mismatch. ac:2 am:51
This error shows up in my system.log file regularly. Searching on Google turns up few useful results.
One search result points to iTunes plug-ins/add-ons, all of which I have removed with no change; I still get this error.
Since the error is coming from mds I tried resetting Spotlight, but nothing changed. I have also cleared caches, fixed permissions, run maintenance scripts, verified/repaired the file system in Disk Utility, verified Time Machine backups, even did a surface scan of my hard drive. Anything I could think of that might effect the file system and cause trouble for mds.
I'm at a loss. Does anyone have any clue what this means and how I can make it stop?
EDIT: During Spotlight re-indexing (with
sudo mdutil -E /), I got a while lot of...

...each repeated many times over in short bursts.
The same error I had before also came up during and after re-indexing.
