Xcode Damages Nested Executables During Mac App Store Submission

Peter Maurer:

After the app passes validation and Xcode uploads it successfully, the upload is ultimately rejected based on the incorrect assertion that sandboxing is not enabled for the nested executable.

I had the same problem with Growl's XPC. Here's the solution that worked for me: https://gist.github.com/karstenBriksoft/5308470

@Michael: Thanks for the link!

@Karsten: Oh, that's clever. I've added your strategy to my workarounds stash. Peter Kamb pointed out yet another way to deal with the problem last night, by the way:

If you combine the info from all known workarounds, it's pretty obvious what/where the issue is. Now all we can do is vote for the bug to get fixed. You know, ROUYWF. (Radar or use your workaround forever.)
