Thanks very much, Dom, for investigating!  Your findings are what I 
thought would be the most likely case, under the circumstances.  
Unfortunately, that means those of us supporting open-source projects do 
need to worry about both Xcode 3.2 and 4.2 on Snow Leopard as well as 
4.2 on Lion.  Apple certainly has made life *interesting*.
