I've actually had this same problem intermittently.

I have OmniFocus 1.9.4 running on OS X 10.6.8 with all of the latest software updates from Apple installed. OF is setup as one of the Login Items that starts up after I have logged into my system in my Standard user role.

About 10-20% of the time, I get the same "Cannot start synchronization server. -- Cannot read pid file for newly launched server" message, but OF still starts up and is usable. It's just that I can't sync using Bonjour with my iPhone or iPad on my local network.

Usually if I quit and then restart OF the problem does not recur (it has only happened once that it repeatedly failed with the same message; a reboot cured the problem).

Any idea what might be causing this? I doubt it is a permissions issue since it works most of the time.

It's a bit of an annoyance so if there is something simple to remedy the problem, I'd be grateful for the fix.
