 Nick reported that 6.0a5 on OS X is neither starting after an update nor
 after being freshly downloaded. The error message is: Tor launcher\n\nTor
 unexpectedly exited. This might be a bug in Tor itself...

 Running "tor.real" from the command line is starting it fine.

 After a bit of testing it turned out that putting it on the desktop is
 working fine, too. Just having it in /Applications produces the bug. I
 guess this is due to #13252.
