Failure to launch Ethereum miner on login on OS X 10.10.5

I am trying and failing to get the Ethereum miner to start on login on my MacBook Pro running OS X 10.10.5

the content of my file

~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.ethereum.plist

is as follows

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">


Label
homebrew.mxcl.ethereum
RunAtLoad

KeepAlive

ThrottleInterval
300
ProgramArguments

/usr/local/opt/ethereum/bin/geth
--mine
--etherbase
"my_etherbase_string_here"
-datadir=/usr/local/Cellar/ethereum/1.0.0/.ethereum

WorkingDirectory
/usr/local



when I login, this script fails to launch and exits with error code 1, as revealed by invoking

launchctl list

and yet, if the script is directly invoked from a shell with that same exact combination of parameters, the Ethereum miner starts without any problem.

can anyone see what I am doing wrong?

thanks in advance.
