Automatic updating of Apple software should not be an issue, and neither should
Flash. That said, the case is a complete mystery so far.

Just to double-check that I understood this correctly - are you saying that the
preference for cookies (as visible in Safari preferences UI) gets reset after
switching to private browsing? Do any other preferences exhibit this behavior?

I was asking to try Safari ("silver-and-blue" Safari 4.0.4, not a WebKit
nightly) in a new user account created via Mac OS X Control Panel just for
this. That's a common way to make sure the problem is not related to any
existing user preferences.
