      Description

      I created a new profile in order to play in an older version of Minecraft and found that I couldn't launch any version from alpha to 1.7.4 (current).

      All I did was change the game directory in the profile settings to <default path>/minecraft-alpha and select an older version from the dropdown list.

      What happens:

      Alpha - black screen
      Beta - blank screen
      recent versions - nothing (application icon appears in dock but no window appears)

      Additionally, I saw that it downloaded the older versions to <default path>/<default game directory> and that <default path>/minecraft-alpha contained only logs/latest.log and output-client.log.
