Summary0000240: trusted paths does not work after restarted
DescriptionFirst, thanks very much for the wonderful app!

I use visualdiffer as the external diff tool with SourceTree. I added /private/var/folders to trusted paths as the help document recommended.
Right after the folder added, it works fine. But after visualdiffer is restarted , it shows the file panel again. And '/private/var/folders' is still in the 'Trusted Paths' panel.
Steps To Reproduce1. add '/private/var/folders' to 'Trusted Paths';
2. 'external diff' in SourceTree, works fine;
3. restart visualdiffer;
3. 'external diff' again, there comes the file panel;
TagsNo tags attached.

There is a regression on sandbox (Apple code), the path /private/var/folders is a symbolic link to /var/folders

Just as workaround please add "/" as trusted path
I know trusting all disk from root is a very bad solution but actually is the only workaround

Thanks for reply!

'/var/folders' is a symbolic link to '/private/var/folders' ?

$ ll /var
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 11 10 28 2013 /var -> private/var/

Yes '/var' is a symlink to '/private/var', internally OSX resolves paths so '/var/.../' never arrive to application and sandbox can't match them.

I'm working to a solution
