Nominating for branch.  This is not being supported for OS X.  If a user needs
to install to the startup folder, it will fail.

That folder name is not valid under Mac OS X - marking WONTFIX.

Resolution: --- → WONTFIX
If that's not a valid target then getFolder("Mac Startup") should return null,
not some other wrong directory.
