Hi, just these last few days some tasks are behaving really odd. Some run over their allotted runtimes quite spectacularly and I have had to abort them, others self-abort because of this same problem. Anyone any ideas what's going on.

A couple of things which will help those who follow (and know Apple products better than me)
First, were they still making progress, albeit very slow progress, or had they actually stalled?
Second, if yo provide links to the tasks that have self-aborted then others may be able to work out what has/is going wrong.

Finally - the ULR you've provided is incomplete, please copy the whole of the URL, not just the last bit.

The URL he gave was of a local nature, not pointing to an external web address.

Thanks guys for your replies. It has resolved itself and everything is running normally now - I did not do anything.

Thanks for letting us know - all too often a problem is raised, a few suggestions made then nothing heard so we don't know if time or suggestions worked. On this occasion it was time that did the job.
