iTunes 7.0.2 and QuickTime, plus Security Update 2007-001 are being
offered as 'new' updates today. Most users will already have
installed these items last month.

If you accept the updates, the download of the update packages fails
with a message that the OS was 'unable to expand' the package.

I don't imagine these are bogus or malware infected updates (favor
cockup over conspiracy theories) but it does slightly worry me that
the checks and balances to stop this happening seem to have been
insufficient.
