I recently was building an installer for an OS10.2 app, and remembered a 
step, which probably makes the difference to you dropping the xcomps 
into application support.

One you've probably done without thinking when notarizing your app.

When downloading any file over the internet, the Mac Os in its wisdom 
adds a quarantine attribute, you have to remove that attribute for it to 
work fine in Application support.

xattr -r -d <filename>
