After further investigation down paths suggested by folks here, I
think the problem has something to do with absolute paths.
set libraryFile to alias "Macintosh HD:Users:elharo:Cafe Au
set libraryFile to alias "elharo:Cafe Au Lait:support:CafeLib.scpt"
succeeds. Furthermore, I can actually open and do things with the
relative alias. Somehow AppleScript is smart enough to figure out
where these relative paths are. I wouldn't be too surprised if the
path were relative to my home directory, but instead it seems to be
relative to the /Users directory. Weird.
I still can't explain what's going on here though. The two things that
changed recently that may have caused this are:
1. Upgrading to 10.6.1 from 10.5.whatever
2. Encrypting my home directory with FileVault.
Not sure how much time I have to really track down the details, but I
would be curious if anyone can explain this.
