iTunes 7.3.2 crashing, force quit does nothing

Software

iTunes 7.3.2

I did a clean install of my MacBook Pro yesterday and did a software update. All the software, firmware and whatnot are the latest versions.

But joy of joys, the latest version of iTunes 7.3.2 has been giving me nothing but grief. It's the first Mac OS X application in five years that I haven't been able to Force Quit, or kill in either the Activity Monitor or by looking up it's PID in top in the Terminal and typing kill PID. Nothing. Nada.

That said though, it looks like I'm not the only one with this problem.

So now I know what Mai was angry about at the end of that last post
