DEVONthink Launching at Login, iOS Sync Broken on OS X 10.6/7

The recent update of DEVONthink to version 2.7 unfortunately brought not only many improvements but also two cumbersome bugs: When the Sorter starts after logging in, e.g. after a system restart, DEVONthink itself opens instead of the Sorter.
