Right now iTunes seems to have decided that I've got no network connectivity, despite the fact that everything else seems happy with my network. It simply says "iTunes could not [do requested network thing]. An unknown error occurred (-4). Make sure your network connection is active and try again." And, well, my network connection is active. I mean, I'm posting this to livejournal, right?

Anyway. In searching online for potential answers, I came across the following whiny snippet in the middle of some guy bitching about his error -4: "I've wasted a good 45 minutes and I'm really stressing out. I have to be at work at 10 and wanted to download some TV shows." Seriously, dude, if you're stressing out because you can't download some TV shows before work, you need to reconsider your priorities in life.

updated to add: the problem appeared after I'd rebooted into whatever jumbo update Apple just rolled out ("security fix: people may have been able to reboot your mac remotely") so perhaps said update broke iTunes and iTunes alone in the networking realm. Whatever's busted hasn't been fixed by restarting iTunes or restarting the Mac. Time to file a bug, I think.

update to update: the iTunes feedback page has iTunes versions up to 7.6.1. Mine appears to be 7.6.2 (9). WTF?
