Vidalia 0.2.15 OS X info.plist Bug

In os x there is an option in Info.plist that allows the app to run in the background w/o menus. its called the LSUIElement.

On both tiger (PPC) and snow leopard (INTEL) vidalia has this value as true (1), it *should* be false. when you open vidalia on a standalone basis you don't see the menus or its presence in the dock. I guess this has something to do with how it should be set when running from the one size fits all bundle. but for those of use who run vidalia as a separate "i want to touch it and play with it' app its wrong.

the fix is obvious, right click on vidalia and select show contents, then nav to Contents---Info.plist, find the LSUIElement near the bottom and change its value to 0.

i also reclassified this property as a number (which i think is the proper form, its currently as a string but honestly i'm not a real programmer guy)

the fix is to right click on vidalia 02.1.15

I see the file in the repo just as you describe it. But I don't think it matters because Vidalia has a way of enabling/disabling this through the config dialog (Appearance tab), so it depends on that setting.

Does it work for you if you just change the setting through Vidalia's config?

I'll assume the answer is "Yes".
