Then I must be in a league all my own. I've been using OS X for over a year
(first 10.1.x then Jaguar), run multiple updates, installed/removed a ton of
software, etc. and never had to repair permissions.

I just finished checking and there *are* some the system says are wrong
which relate to some browser plugins but so long as the system is working OK
I'm not going to monkey with things.

So it would appear that the system will run fine with at least some
incorrect permissions.
