Process::isForegroundProcess() hits assertion in File


#1

Calling Process::isForegroundProcess() on Mac OS X results in:

JUCE Assertion failure in juce_File.cpp:174

The problem is that it tries to parse juce_argv[0] as an absolute path, but this can be a relative path when you start an executable from the terminal.

Backtrace:

Good catch, thanks! Will sort that out today…
