It works! I stopped using anacron when Apple's last security update  
from 2008 stopped the peaceful coexistence of Desktop Manager and  
Dock. The only cure was to archive&install (I can perform it now in  
three hours!). And I did not re-install anacron. Launch Service is a  
bit slow, i.e., eight hours can pass with the Mac on until it sees:  
oh, I missed one!

BTW, in your system you should find that things get done twice ...  
(with MenuMeters or iStat menu in the  menu bar or GKrellm in X11  
you can see two peaks of simultaneous CPU load and disk use; and of  
course there are the LOG files)
