Another workaround is to use the Command Line Interface (CLI), present since EnergyPlus 8.3. This is also the preferred method to invoke EnergyPlus.

To see all the command line options run /Applications/EnergyPlus-8-3-0/energyplus -h

For a typical simulation:

/Applications/EnergyPlus-8-4-0/energyplus -w /Applications/EnergyPlus-8-4-0/WeatherData/USA_IL_Chicago-OHare.Intl.AP.725300_TMY3.epw /Applications/EnergyPlus-8-4-0/ExampleFiles/RefBldgMediumOfficeNew2004_Chicago.idf

I have also created an EnergyPlus issue.
