For a few reasons, during the development phase, I'd like to run my program without it being in a bundle. There are 2 problems I've run into when doing this. 1) I can't modify the top menubar. Either by setting the NSMenu directly or loading a NIB. 2) I can't get mouseMove events. Mouse button and drag events work fine. MouseMove is hosed. The above work fine if I run the program from a bundle. So. Is there something I can do in my code to make things work when not run from a bundle?
