comment Something is messing with my disk permissions, which breaks a lot of file-related stuff. Can I find out what is causing this?
Unfortunately, I'm not looking to uninstall Java, as I'm a professional Java software developer so I need to have it.

Hmm. This seems like a similar but unrelated issue. I'll keep an eye on it though. For me, it's never just one application breaking at once, and repairing permissions always fixes the problem, so it sounds like something different.

@Mark I just checked, and a chmod doesn't count as a file open, so opensnoop -f wouldn't pick up a permission change only operation. But I think it's a fair assumption that anything changing the permissions of a file will proceed to use a file, so I'm still running a background opensnoop process with redirected output to check just in case.

KeyRemap might work, as I typically use the AEKII hooked up to an MBP in clamshell with an external display. I'll check it out, thanks!
