Apple has released Software Installer Update 1.0 for Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard.

However, if you’ve been experiencing any problems with installing updates directly out of Software Update, be sure to download this installer from the Apple support page. (Free, 1.34 MB)

The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.
