If I don't run it, then I can debug my app - except that my app needs to be sandboxed, and if I sandbox the app but DON'T run macdeployqt, then the app crashes - probably because it doesn't have read access to the Qt libraries. Without sandboxing, I get weird behavior (specifically, it appears to be getting some settings from SOMEWHERE - using QSettings -, but for the life of me I can't figure out where), and it's not really a valid test anyway. So I'm a bit stumped here - unless I can somehow modify macdeployqt to prevent breaking debugging?

Thanks. The -no-strip did the trick. For some reason -use-debug-libs prevent the package from being properly code signed, so the resulting application couldn't be sandboxed, but just using the -no-strip should be good enough.

Strange that I never had to do that before though. Oh well.
