Keychain access and new builds - Mac Programming

I have an app which accesses the Keychain. If I use a given build repeatedly, I am only prompted for permission to access the item only on the first attempt, at which point I choose "Allows Allow" and of course, I'm never prompted for this build again. When I rebuild my app, I get prompted again. How can I stop this? The path of the app never changes, so how can I stop being prompted everytime I build? Thanks...

    Default Keychain access and new builds

    I have an app which accesses the Keychain. If I use a given build
    repeatedly, I am only prompted for permission to access the item only on
    the first attempt, at which point I choose "Allows Allow" and of course,
    I'm never prompted for this build again. When I rebuild my app, I get
    prompted again. How can I stop this? The path of the app never changes,
    so how can I stop being prompted everytime I build?

    I don't want you to stop being prompted! :) Evidently the keychain looks
    at the mod date or something like that, and sees this as a different app.
    That's good because it keeps you from writing a trojan horse that
    substitutes for an app that I've already got, and to which I've already
    granted keychain permission, and then reads all my passwords. m.

    You can't because it would be a security hole for anybody to be able to modify
    an application and assume the original application's privileges.
