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.
