|Touch FinderPop Extra works on one Mac, not on another|
I have FP 2.5 installed on two Macs, both running Mountain Lion.4.
One Mac has FP installed in the user PreferencePanes folder, the other has it installed in the System folder's PreferencePanes folder (FileVault is turned on).
The "Touch" FinderPop Extra (installed in the FinderPop Items folder in the user Library folder) works flawlessly on the former Mac, does not work at all on the latter.
What needs to be done to get Touch working properly on the Mac with FinderPop installed in the System folder's PreferencePanes folder?
Many thanks in advance!

AFAICR, when furtling with shell scripts, FinderPop prints to the console what it's about to do if you have CAPS LOCK down.
Touch is a shell script which just does
Have CAPS LOCK down, control-click a file, choose 'Touch' from the resulting FP menu.
What does Console.app say when you try it on your second (FileVault) Mac (ie the one where it doesn't work?) Repeat the experiment on the Mac where it does work - using the same file and location if possible. Does /usr/bin/touch exist on both Macs?
Is there anything unusual about the filename / pathname you selected instances?
Do the Lock and Unlock FP extras also fail to work?
