Recently my mac has started asking me for a password after I use
cd in Terminal.app (haven't tested other term apps).
strangely though, if I press ctrl-C when the passowrd is asked, the question goes away and I'm left in the dir I was
cd-ing to (as one would expect).
how can I find out what this password is needed for or how to stop this?
The terminal asks for a password at random moments, for random directories. Not a clue as to any pattern. The output is basically:
cd ~/Downloads Password:
I think this started happening after I installed JewelryBox.app
