Ah, hum, yes. Well, you didn't say explicitly you were using MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, were you now O:-)

Well, I'm glad things work like they do (and think I can see why they do but that's not the point here). You may not want to the hassle of continuing to support 10.9 but I'm doing nothing illegal in reintroducing the necessary code, am I now? It's been a not uninteresting ride until now, as it takes me to places in the code I would otherwise never get to look at...
