OSX: opening PCBNew standalone


Hi folks,

On a current Mac build, are we supposed to be able to open PCBNew.app on
its own?

When I do, I get the following error:
The error is: 06:53:16: dlopen(/Volumes/Contents/PlugIns/_pcbnew.kiface,
10): image not found
06:53:16: IO_ERROR: Fatal Installation Bug
missing file:

/Users/jenkins/remoteroot/workspace/KiCadMacBuild/kicad/common/kiway.cpp :
KiFACE() : line 219

However, I can open it fine through Kicad.app.  I know these standalone app
things are relatively new for Kiface OSX builds, so I'm mostly wondering if
they're supposed to work yet.
