I was just going to open this bug :)

Adding Tor. Maybe related to changes in regards to Mac AppStore?
Comment 3 Emir Sarı 2013-08-19 14:36:18 UTC
I think it may be related to Tor's latests commits on changing the application structure to a more Mac-like application structure. Would be fixed eventually, not seems like a serious issue.

Yep, can reproduce, was caused by my changes, somehow this slipped through my testing. Will fix.
Comment 5 Commit Notification 2013-08-19 18:40:44 UTC
Tor Lillqvist committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":


fdo#68261: 'program' is a symlink, need to use the real name 'MacOS'

The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More

Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.

Thanks a lot for dealing with this so quickly, Tor. This is great.

Looking forward to the next Nightly build including the color picker fix, yey. :)
