Since I've got 2 OSX experts not too far.

On Lion, drag and drop operation (install and update time), require to
be signed for admin rights
And update (ie dragging a new version over a previous one), didn't
works anymore.

Don't get such behaviour on SnowLeopard.

DMG use standard hdiutil stuff, unchanged from Snow.

Any idea about update problem ?
