Mac standalones (Rev 4.0) don't run under Jaguar (10.2.8)

After doing a little more research, it appears that a standalone built with Rev 3.5 does indeed work just fine running under 10.2. One built with Rev 4.0 does not. So does anyone know if Rev dropped support for 10.2 when they released 4.0. If so, why is the Jaguar theme support plugin still part of the app bundle?

I will probably end up writing to Rev support about this, but thought I'd ask here first. Responses tend to be a little faster in arriving.

Thanks again.

We are in the process of doing an update to our software. We switched to Rev 4.0 for this update in order to fix a few bugs. Unfortunately, it's looking like standalones built with Rev 4.0 do not run under Jaguar. We're getting the infamous bouncing icon in the dock and then it crashes. Is anyone else seeing this? The jaguar_theme_support bundle is still in the Plugins folder in the app bundle, so I'm assuming this issue is not intentional (in other words, RunRev have not intentionally dropped support for 10.2.x).

What I can't remember though is if there ended up being an easy fix for it, or if we had to revert to a previous version of Rev. I've checked permissions on the app bundle, which is usually the cause of such behavior, but everything looks fine to me. I've compared the info.plist files between the previous version of our app (built with Rev 3.0) and this version (built with 4.0) and the only differences are version information. Everything seems to be correct there. So I'm worried it's an engine problem.
