Starting recently, if OSX (NS) Emacs isn't running, "open -a emacs ."
starts up emacs, but doesn't open the current directory.  If emacs is
already running, it opens a dired on the current directory.

Prior to "recently", it didn't matter whether Emacs was running or
not -- the current directory was opened.

This also breaks dragging a folder or file onto the icon, if Emacs isn't
yet running.  Again, if emacs is already running, the old behavior is

Other than telling me "never quit emacs" :), was this an intentional
change (and if so, why), or is it a bug that someone can look at?
