Recent MuseScore Nightlies won't open on Mac OS 10.9.x

I had been running a MuseScore Nightly from 2014-04-23 successfully. Yesterday and today I downloaded several of the recent nightlies, and all crash when I attempt to open them ("MuseScore quit unexpectedly"; Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)). This is with Mac Mavericks, OS 10.9.2, and now continuing after upgrading last night to Mavericks 10.9.3. I can't find a post about this at the forums; is it a known problem? If so, why are versions that won't open on the current OS being posted? And can someone point me to a link to the most recent version known to open with Mavericks? (The oldest version currently on the nightlies page is only 4 days old and has the same problem.)


There is no mention of "Factory reset" on the Mac nightly builds page. If I go to the windows page I don't see anything about "factory reset" either. I do see (on the windows page) something about removing the MuseScore profile folder. The corresponding item for Mac is ~/Library/Application\ Support/MuseScore/MuseScoreNightly. I did remove that folder and was then able to start up the latest Nightly. So, apparently the "Factory reset" for mac should consist of removing this folder.
