Aha! My iPhone and iPod touch connection problems and generally iTunes “crash-iness” was not unique to me. Apple just relesesed…

iTunes 9.0.3 (DL927 description)

Here’s what’s fixed:

– iTunes no longer ignores your “Remember password for purchases” setting.
– Addresses problems with syncing some Smart Playlists and Podcasts with iPod.
– Resolves a problem recognizing when iPod is connected.
– Addresses issues that affect stability and performance.

It would be great if Apple fixed iPhoto 09 next. That application crashes about 50% of the time I connect and iPhone or iPod touch (via USB) and doesn’t recognize the device about 25% of the time
