I've only tried on Intel systems so far, and my G5 either needs a new power
supply or a decent burial.  My primary account here is non-admin, and it
works fine.

Artemio, did you check the console log as I suggested to see if anything was
reported there?  Ignore the spew like

07/15/09 12:56:43 System Preferences[52875] TeXDist INFO: defaults at

but if this is architecture related, I'd think it would be logged.

I notice there's a ppc64 architecture in the prefpane.  I wonder if
stripping it out with `lipo -remove ppc64
/Library/PreferencePanes/TeXDistPrefPane.prefPane/Contents/MacOS/*` would
resolve the problem?
