Sigh... I didn't realize that latexdiff-fast writes a temporary file.
Since I owned that directory on my system it was happy to let that
happen. When I tested the application with a non-admin login I got
the same results as you did. I've just put up (yet another new)
version that creates the temp file in the same directory as the two
files to compare so you'll see a file that is transient flash by as
the processing goes on; I'll probably change that to a tmp directory
at some point but it works fine. I'm very glad I added the log file;
that's how I easily discovered the problem.
Again... download Droplatexdiff.app.zip from <http://homepage.mac.com/
herbs2/>. Luckily it's not a big download.
