    I have searched with Google and with Sherlock: Apple's pages,
    including tech notes and discussions, and various search boxes there;
    sites with names like macfixit and osxhints; Darwin sites, but I don't
    think pbs sources are there; pbs man page is not there, either; I
    combed by hand two years worth of a mailing list archive that did not
    have a search box and was protected against indexing robots because
    they fear spammers.

    I have used keywords like "pasteboard server" and "property list" and
    plist, pbs, also the error message that I want to get rid of.

    I have gone through all admin-readable .plist and .strings file on my
    machine; none seemed to be the right one, though many were broken.

    I have been to a bookstore, too. (O'Reilly's Mac OS X for Unix Geeks
    is nice but does not tell about pbs; I have the pre-Jaguar edition of
    Mac OS X Unleashed, too, but cannot find this there, either).

    Short summary: I have tried. If you really know that Google can help,
    perhaps you can provide better keywords to try, or even a URL.

    What would you do with that list? I can think of a few ways to derive
    it, but I'm not sure what the point would be. There's probably a better
    way to do whatever you're trying to accomplish.

    My real mission is a bit frivolous. I want to get rid of the following
    message that appears in console.log a few seconds after login:

    2003-07-10 20:11:55.481 pbs[10559] CFLog (0):\
    CFPropertyListCreateFromXMLData():\
    Old-style plist pr: missing semicolon in dictionary.
    2003-07-10 20:11:55.488 pbs[10559] CFLog (0):\
    CFPropertyListCreateFromXMLData():\
    The file name for this data might be (or it might not):\
    file://localhost/usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Helsinki

    There are such .plist and .strings files, zoneinfo/Europe/Helsinki is
    not one of them, but I cannot identify the right one, if indeed the
    message is about a file.

    How would you find out what pbs reads? I have tried /usr/bin/strings
    on /System/Library/CoreServices/pbs - a Mach-O executable - but then I
    ran out of ideas.

    The machine came with 10.1.4, I think; now at 10.2.6; Finnish,
    English, one account was Spanish for a while and some applications
    still remember it; no login items.

    Have you tried using sudo fs_usage? It shows you in real time
    filesystem reads and writes, including the file that's being read or
    written and the process doing it.
