Yes, well, could you please humor me and copy/paste it?  As mentioned  
in the release notes, DISPLAY is now different in this version than it  
was before.  It should look something like:

Yes, that is not functioning properly in 2.4.1_alpha1 because of  
CFBundleGetVersionNumber being so restrictive.  I nuked that check

new releases with an old server.

launchctl list will list your LaunchAgents
sudo launchctl list will list the system's LaunchDaemons

Check out 'man launchctl'
