Thanks Kevin,

can you elaborate a bit as I did not fully follow what you wrote.

As I launch the application by double clicking at the .app where does the terminal come in?

Also is this a work around for being able to grant the control to the app or 
to the phenomenon that the icon and name are wrong in the System Preferences pane
where the access is granted?
