This is a shot in the dark but sandboxing may be the culprit here. My guess
is that the engine is trying to get a hold
of /System/Library/CoreServices/CommonCocoaPanels.bundle incorrectly.
LiveCode has to use Cocoa dialogs for file/folder dialogs in order to work
with sandboxing. Peace and harmony do not always exist between LiveCode
apps that are sandboxed and the file/folder dialogs.

Are you showing any file/folder dialogs in the application? If so, can you
determine if the error occurs if you don't show any file/folder dialogs?
