This was it! I was sure I had downloaded the 32-bit version - I had the belief that 64-bit versions for MacOSX was experimental still, and thus not offered as part of the regular downloads. I was wrong, and hadn’t noticed.

Now that I downloaded LO 4.3 as 32 bit and ran it, LO-voikko worked exactly as it should:D

That is, everything code-wise is fine:)

What is left to do is to build a 64-bit or - preferably - a universal binary version of LO-voikko. In the meantime, I will document to our users that only 32-bit LO is supported for now.
