      Description

      The new OS X launcher (with bundled Java runtime) will not start when a 1.9 snapshot game is opened. Previous game versions (tested 1.8 and 1.7) don’t cause this issue.

      Replacing the Minecraft.app bundle with a clean-slate version from .dmg, running it (allow it to download runtime, etc) will clear the problem and launcher will start properly.

      This happens with 1.6.44 and 1.6.45-dev versions.

      Anytime launcher gets stuck, the following can be found in Console.app:

      16/09/15 14:17:10,000 kernel[0]: Sandbox: launcher(7340) System Policy: deny file-write-unlink /Users/riddle/Library/Saved Application State/YES.savedState/restorecount.plist

      Also, trying to select `launcher` application in Minecraft.app bundle will crash the Finder, OS X’s default file manager. Just selecting it, not even trying to open.

      There is no error in nativelog.txt. Contents attached.
