For some reason, the application has not been built correctly.
In particular, the JavaApplicationStub is not set to be executable.
Launching then fails with a permission denied error.

9/28/12 1:08:02.078 AM com.apple.launchd.peruser.501:
([0x0-0x9a09a].org.vassalengine.VASSAL[2768])
posix_spawn("/Volumes/VASSAL-3.2.0-beta3/VASSAL-3.2.0-beta3.app/Contents/MacOS/JavaApplicationStub",
...): Permission denied

Manually changing the permissions to be executable fixes the problem.
