App bundles are considered "corrupt" and don't run in Mavericks

    Details

    • Type: Bug

    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Won't Fix
    • Affects Version/s: 2.6.0

      Mac OS X 10.9.0 "Mavericks".

      Description

      Double clicking any of our app bundles on a Mac results in an error dialog:

      "ControlPanel" is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash.
      
      [Cancel] [Move to Trash]
      

      Running bin/control-panel from the Terminal works fine.

      This appears to be an issue caused by the signature on the JavaApplicationStub binary not matching each bundle. eg:

      $ codesign -vvv ds1/bin/ControlPanel.app
      ds1/bin/ControlPanel.app: invalid Info.plist (plist or signature have been modified)
      In architecture: x86_64
      

      If you sign it - even with an ad-hoc identity - the problem goes away and OS X allows the app to run based on the identity of the signer. (i.e. the normal Gatekeeper settings apply.)

      $ codesign -s - --force ds1/bin/ControlPanel.app
      ds1/bin/ControlPanel.app: replacing existing signature
      

      Codesigning modifies the JavaApplicationStub binary, so this means that the stub in ControlPanel.app will now be different from the stub in QuickSetup.app, etc.
