Someone used to UNIX systems is quite likely to run the binary from the
Terminal, eg /path/to/Scribus.app/Contents/Scribus (or whatever) . That
might seem silly, but it makes more sense if you've just just compiled
it so you try to run it as ./scribus, not realising it'll only work when
put in a .app bundle and run with special Mac OS X launch systems.
I still get thrown by the way Aqua apps on Mac OS X are "special" and
can't be launched via the normal POSIX methods. Then again, lots of
things throw me on Mac OS X.
I wonder if there's any way we can have Scribus on Mac OS X detect that
it's not being run from launch services and complain... or if that's
something that'll break things like debuggers.
