It might make sense, given the GUI philosophy of TLU, to follow the pref pane in this respect.

(Not that I ever attempted, or will ever attempt, to change that other than for testing.) Is this what you mean by "not allowing changing that level of granularity"?

Works fine under OS X 10.10.3 too. I no longer have any other OS so Dick Koch will have to test under previous OS versions.

I assume that TLU is OS 10.7 and later so only using x86_64-darwin is reasonable.

Good Luck,
