Aperture Hang on Launch

Intermittently I get an issue with Aperture (3.3.2) hanging on launch. The cause? A bad symlink within the application bundle. It typically fails with a 8/27/12 11:20:33.797 am Aperture[31820]: *** -[NSURL initFileURLWithPath:]: nil string parameter and I remember an Adium beta failed similarly.

I'll chalk this up to bit rot at files copied over from my previous Mac Pro, BUT it's happened at least twice with Aperture, and so I keep the 3.3.2 updater around as well as a copy of 3.3.1.
