Software Update Error!

During the update process for SourceTree I get this error after the download:

"An error occurred while extracting the archive. Please try again later."

Previous updates have worked, but I get this error every time now with my MacBook Pro running 10.6. I have a Mac Pro desktop that's running 10.7 and it has updated SourceTree without any problems at all. What could be going on here?

When I look in the system log I see these messages as well:

Jun 13 20:33:59 --- /Applications/[42669]: error processing extended attributes: Argument list too long
Jun 13 20:33:59 --- [0x0-0x272272].com.torusknot.SourceTreeNotMAS[42669]: "disk1" unmounted.

Yes, there appears to be a problem with the Sparkle update process on 10.6 with the new Developer ID signature. The build does work on 10.6 though, so please just download manually for now from I don't have a 10.6 machine with me to investigate (I'm at WWDC right now) but will try to figure out what's up after my return.
