Somehow (and I don't know how yet) I just reproduced this on my PPC box.
Can you please start pgAdmin so it sits on the dock, and then in a
terminal window, run

ps -ef |grep pg_dump

I found I had a zombie pg_dump process (pgAdmin calls pg_dump at startup
to check the version). I then renamed the copy of pg_dump in the pgAdmin
appbundle, and one I had in /usr/local/bin (you might have others in the
path of course). After I killed pgAdmin, it then started just fine.

/D
