Please remember to CC the list when you reply. BTW, gnucash-devel is for the Gnucash developers to discuss gnucash internals, not for 
support; the correct list for that is gnucash-user.

The space in "GNU Cash" is tripping up the launcher script. The highest-confidence solution would be to rename it to GNU_Cash if you really insist on having an extra directory layer... but is a self-contained bundle, so nothing else is going to go in that extra folder, it probably makes more sense to not have it and just keep directly in /Applications.
