Software Update keeps installing iTunes Producer in Mac OSX Lion

Yesterday I upgraded a MacBook 4,1 to Mac OSX Lion for one of our users. Our standard practice after upgrading the OS is to run Software Update repeatedly until it says there are no more updates. In this case the last update Software Update finds is iTunes Producer 2.6.0. I tell it to install iTunes Producer and it says the update was installed successfully but when I run Software Update again, it says "New Software is available for your computer", and shows me iTunes Producer 2.6.0 again. I've run it now about 5 times. I've also restarted the MacBook. I've attached screen shots of both dialogs. I did not find any information in a Google search. Any ideas?

Thanks,
donander

Well, I had the issue in Windows and I don't know Mac, but in windows you go to configuration screen>software, look for "Apple software update" click on modify and then choose repair.

It looks like this update was unintentionally published by Apple. The consensus is that it will stop appearing, hopefully today.

Since I found the answer, I'd like to delete the question and refund the points. Is that ok with you?

One of my coworkers pointed me to this solution. EVeuger said to award him/her 1 point for effort but in the past a moderator told me points are not awarded for effort, only for solutions. Since EVeuger included a ;-) at the end of his/her comment maybe she/he was joking but I just wanted to mention this in case there is some policy I have not heard of to award 1 point for effort. Thanks, donander.
