I know a lot of people mispronounce that word, but this is the first I've seen it misspelled to match that mispronunciation. Quite amusing, if you axe me. Takes my mind of the nucular troubles Japan is having.
I cannot address how things are done on the Mac-side of the street, but there are often programs and processes, that must be shut down for some program updates, as they will need to be rewritten too, and this cannot happen, if they are running, or resident.
On a PC, if one encounters such an issue, the offending program is usually being called at bootup, and one would use a utility, like the built-in MSCONFIG, to just not load that program, or process, until the update is done.
I can only guess that similar exists for the Mac, but could be horribly wrong.
Maybe Todd, Jeremy, or another valued Adobe employee, who also knows Mac's, can weigh in and help.

What do you mean that it's not possible?
Is the process still running after you've quit the application? If so, you can kill the process. Sure, you shouldn't have to do that, but it's there as an option if you need it.
