In the meantime, is there any workaround? I am trying to play Minecraft on Mac OS X 10.8 and the game just fails to start. Even after updating LWJGL used by Minecraft, the same problem persists. I cannot believe that every Mac user wanting to play Minecraft has now to install Windows or some flavor of Linux on their machine! Well, I am starting to believe many advanced users cannot live with just Mac OS X, which is too basic and restrictive (mainly GUI over-simplifying things), but I would like to dig further to be sure of that.
