I tend to run disk repair after I do any kind of update to the OS or install any major software install. I've always heard that's good practice.

As far as defragging goes, Macs supposedly no longer need it. However, I do run TechTool Pro. I have found that running maintenance and defragging monthly improves my machines' performance. When I check my disk before optimizing, it shows a very fragmented disk. It's not just free space fragmentation, but also file fragmentation. Unless TTP is lying, there is no ongoing defrag. TTP for Leopard was just recently released. I have been very happy with every version. I'm just one of those, "Rather be safe than sorry" types. I'll continue to Repair Permissions every now and then, too.
