After some further experiments, I think this *is* significant.  I
tried compiling my application bundle on two Macs (an iMac G5 1.8 GHz
and a G4 Cube 450 MHz, both running OS X 10.4.2).  It turns out that
the bundle built on the iMac does not work on the Cube, and vice
versa.  

When running the iMac-compiled bundle on the Cube, (FIND-CLASS
'NS:+NS-OBJECT+) evaluates to:

#<OBJC:OBJC-METACLASS NS:+NS-OBJECT (#xA28876FC)>

while the error message reads:

> Error: Class #<A Mac Pointer #xA28816FC> isn't recognized.

When trying to run the Cube-compiled bundle on the iMac, I get exactly
the opposite:

#<OBJC:OBJC-METACLASS NS:+NS-OBJECT (#xA28816FC)>
