I had to stop using the existing OS X port posted last year because it often 
failed - it would end up hanging and creating extremely large files about 
10% of the time - on the order of a few hundred megs - before I could kill 

Not sure if this version contains the same bug.

This may be sacrilege, but the existing DOS version works great under DOSbox 
in OSX.  It is slower this way, but still it only takes about 20 seconds to 
disassemble, and it doesn't appear to have the bug I mentioned.
