External displayed as folder

Dear developers,

Since a month or so my own pre-UB externals are displayed as folders in finder and no longer recognized by max. It looks similar to what happens when you choose show package contents on an application. This started on one computer and now happens on other computers as well. Could it be that something changed recently?

I don’t have much experience with the way OSX handles files/folders so it would be more than welcome if anyone could give me a clue about what’s happening. Does someone recognize this problem?

Mac OS 10.4.8, Max 4.5.7

Thanks in advance,
Mattijs

Ok, solved. I had no luck searching this forum, but google delivered some results on other forums where this problem is discussed. Taking terms from those threads into this forum, I stumbled upon

This solves my problem.

It seems to be a special case that has something to do with SubEthaEdit (that I just installed on several of our systems). It would be a good idea for c74 to include this info in the sdk examples.

Cheers,
Mattijs

FWIW, for mzed, this problem also occurs with the CNMAT OSX-MachO externals distributions. Putting Pgkinfo files in the bundles would solve this problem.
