posix_spawn(“/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework/Versions/A/Resources/usbmuxd”, …): No such file or directory

I installed Xcode 3.2.4 and the new iOS SDK last night.
Today my iPhone and iPad wouldn’t show up in iTunes 10.1 and my system.log was filled with the following message:
posix_spawn("/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework/Versions/A/Resources/usbmuxd", ...): No such file or directory
Turns out my entire MobileDevice.framework folder was pretty much wiped out. Which makes no sense, because Xcode + iOS SDK is supposed to install more iPhone frameworks, not delete what you already have!
Anyway, I redownloaded and reinstalled Xcode and now everything’s fine. The only thing I can think of is that I was upgrading my Ruby gems last night around the same time. Boo software collisions. Lesson? When in doubt, reinstall.
