comment Is there a way to detect what program is stealing focus on my Mac?
Yes, that would be a way of informing a guess about what the problem is, but I'm looking for something that actually obtains the information directly.

comment Getting launchd to read program arguments correctly
I don't have an answer for your problem, but your first example with <string>--host localhost</string> will definitely not work. Remember, when you write a command line to a shell, it has no idea what's part of an option and what's a regular argument — it just splits on spaces before passing the arguments to the program being run. Also, it might help if you were to show the exact error that boinccmd is reporting.

It's a checkbox in Get Info for the volume containing the folder. (Note it can't be set on the startup disk.)

comment MacBook screen very dark after resuming on OS X 10.8
Is the screen displaying a dark image (gets easier to see if you take it into a completely dark room), or is the backlight actually off (black in a dark room, gets sort-of more visible if you shine a very bright light at the screen)? I wonder if this is a hardware problem.
