Sometime ago, I used carbon copy as I was replacing my hard drive in my Mac Mini running Snow Leopard. Afterwards, on my new drive I had some permission problems.

I've tried several times running a repair permissions / repair disk from disk util. It shows that there are problems and I think it says its correceted the problems.

However the problems remain, what can I do to fix them ?

It doesn't seem to cause me any problems, that I can tell

EDIT
