You need to go into the General Controls control panel. In the bottom
right portion, you'll see three radio buttons inside a frame labeled
To get the old non-Performa behavior we expect, select the top one: Folder
which contains the application.
The Performa-like bottom selection seems to get in the way, so does the
nice-sounding middle one (which I tried for a while and gave up).
