On a Mac, what looks like an application is actually a folder. It just 
looks like a file in the Finder. But if you right-click on it and choose 
"Show package contents" you will see that it is a folder with quite a 
few files and subfolders inside it. That's where your second stack is, 
probably inside the MacOS subfolder.

This probably isn't related to your file structures. I saw that error 
once a long time ago, when I compressed data on one OS and tried to 
decompress on a different one. But it was quite a while ago and I can't 
remember now exactly why it happened. Are you doing anything like that?
