Alas, I don't get that far. I installed it, copied it into /Applications
then ran it. It shows up in my dock, and if I select it from there my menu
bar gets a single unresponsive Aquamacs menu item. There is a shell process
using an entire core. According to ps it is:
skip 13177 93.4 0.0 600172 536 ?? R 1:58PM 4:49.82 /bin/sh /usr/libexec/path_helper -s
I went away to a meeting, came back an hour or so later and Aquamacs had
popped up. I killed it and restarted it from my dock. Same symptoms:

I let that run for a little bit, got tired of waiting, then killed both.
Restarted again. Same behavior. If I run /usr/libexec/path_helper -s from
a shell prompt it returns "prompt"ly.
I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.3, just upgraded this morning.
