I cannot reproduce this bug. Both in the bundled and unbundled version on my machine.
Joris, can you provide more details?

Is this still valid?

With qt and macosx extensions enabled there is no problem opening a file from the command line (there couldn't be any related to these extensions since right now they are used only for the X11 version)

With X11m on the other hand, we crash:

I still experience the bug. It is also more annoying now that
I made --enable-macosx-extensions the default.

I've tested in Snow Leopard and I cannot reproduce the bug in the unbundled version.
Please check again.

Could not reproduce on 10.5. Possibly an issue with 10.6. In Leopard with configuration

$ ./configure --enable-qt --enable-macosx-extensions

command line arguments works both well with the bundled and unbundled executables.

Assuming that TeXmacs was configures using --enable-macosx-extensions, the application segfaults when we launch it with one file argument.
