Arrr, no.  In FB3, FINDERINFO _requires_ the bit to be set, because Staz does all the work with AppleEvents, then fakes the FINDERINFO data.  So to recap (corrections welcome):

In FB2
------
You need to have the bit set if you are using AppleEvents for file opening, but then you can't use the FINDERINFO call at all.

You need to un-set the bit if you are using FINDERINFO, but then you can't use AppleEvents at all.

In FB3
------
You must have the bit set at all times, because the rutime now uses AppleEvents.  But you can still use FINDERINFO, because the rutime provides the needed data for FINDERINFO to work.
