I have seen this before and it is a permissions problem caused (as
Malte suggests) by copying an uncompressed app from one computer to
another. The system version has nothing to do with it as far as I
know. Panther & Tiger both have built-in compression. Right-click
(control-click) on the application and choose "Create archive..." to
make a zip file that can easily be transferred.
