Sporadic "answer file ... as sheet"

   Thanks for the links.  It may be related.  Interestingly, Apple didn’t seem to have issue with signing or sandboxing (perhaps the new Mavericks way of signing combined with my use of App Wrapper got me past that).  The sporadic behavior where it sometimes appeared as a sheet and other times as a stand alone dialog is perplexing.  Even more odd, it always works unless it is a clean OS install.

    I guess will update, removing the “as sheet”, variant and hope for the best.
