Because if it did that then the permission repair app wouldn't spit warnings at me saying that it had to change a bunch of permissions. :-)
If anybody reading this has OS X and like to try out permission repair tool, be sure to never use the tool on the installation cdrom.
The corrent way to go about repairing FS problems with OS X is to boot up using the OS X disk and running disk check and repair stuff from that. Then once that is done boot up and then run the permission repair from the utility folder. The reason for this is that Apple likes to change file permissions around for different updates so the permissions that the install cdrom thinks the FS should have is almost always wrong in one way or another. :-)
I got used to doing that.
Apparently people don't understand that they have to run 'shutdown' on the computer FIRST, then hit the power strip. If they go for the power strip first then the shutdown stuff didn't work. Some people seemed to have difficulty grasping that concept.
