Weird problem with pdfbeads

I recently had to reinstall my system (OS X), and after reinstalling scantailor and pdfbeads, I'm getting an error at the end of processing with pdfbeads:

Error: could not write to STDOUT

If I pass a file name with the -o option, I get:

Error: could not write to book.pdf

Anyone have any ideas what this could be? I feel like I must be missing something simple, but can't figure out what it is.

I think I have sufficient permissions for the file, after all, the pdf file gets created, it just has 0kb in it.
