In that case I think it's able to infer the bundle from the directory  
containing TextEdit, but consider the following:

$ ln -s /Applications/TextEdit.app/Contents/MacOS/TextEdit /tmp/foo
$ /tmp/foo 2007-12-13 22:21:33.780 foo[2185:10b] No Info.plist file in  
application bundle or no NSPrincipalClass in the Info.plist file,
