Don't waste time troubleshooting. This is a bug affecting lots of users, with many related discussion threads on Apples website.

Curiously, the bug appears to affect Lion users who updated to 10.7.5 and Mountain Lion users who updated to 10.8.2.

Both of those updated were released on the same day, and I'm sure it's not a coincidence that the bug is in both updates.

Several users have found that disabling Spotlight fixes the problem, but that's not a solution I find acceptable.

I have an 8am phone appt with AppleCare, and I'll let you know what they say.
