GnuCash 2.6.11, Yosemite, and Gatekeeper

I finally got around to downloading and installing 2.6.11 for Mac OS X, and I ran into troubles with Gatekeeper. Basically, Gatekeeper fired up a Verifying dialog that would not go away, even after GnuCash had fully started up. Clicking the cancel button caused GnuCash to close out altogether. 

I had to temporarily disable Gatekeeper so that I could get the older “This application is from an unknown developer dialog.” and click through in order to clear this up. This is apparently a known issue with non-Apple programs, but I thought that John had cleared the issue up somehow. I figured I should pass along the information in case there is a better workaround.
