I figured it out late last night after backing off from the problem for 
a while. I left out some important info in my message: I upgraded my 
Mac, and the external I am using is not a universal binary. The app is. 
All I need to do is either check the "Run in Rosetta" checkbox in the 
Finder, or install a univeral binary version of the external.

I should have figured that out. I knew about the issue. I think I was 
just too close to the problem to see it. But thanks for the tip. I 
didn't know about that  one and I'm sure it will be useful.
