maybe a stupid question - i installed little snitch and now when i shutdown an applcation sometimes i get the message for example - "photoshop wants to connect to tcp port 123 on localhost"

what's all this stuff about app's wanting to cennect to localhost - why???

You have to keep in mind that Little Snitch basically tells you _everything_. It sometimes turns people into paranoid vegetables in doing so. ;) ... If a local application wants to connect to your own computer (localhost), that's not really something that should give you shivers, just _allow_ your own applications to connect to your own computer 'forever', and the message should not pop up anymore. Not for this "problem" at least.
