10.4.3 Broken Shell Script Paths

MacOSXHints has posted a detailed look at an annoying problem that has cropped up in Automator 1.0.2:

“…it appears that the ‘Get Selected Finder Items’ action has changed its behavior under 10.4.3, and not for the better…the problem is that the path returned by Get Selected Finder Items isn’t usable by the Run Shell Script action.

It turns out that if you take an action, any action, on the Finder selection, then the path will be correct. What’s the best action to add? One that doesn’t do much of anything — Label Finder Items, with the label set to None.”
