[PD] PD and paths

Something has changed regarding PD and paths in version 0.36, and it is
not very pleasant.
As far as I can see all paths in PD are now relative to the place from
where you start PD - and then not.
1) I start PD with a relative command like ./foo/bar/pd/bin/pd -open
With 0.35 filename was relative to the pd binary, now it is relative to
where I start it from. This I can live with.
2) I am trying to read a file with msgfile.With version 0.35 the file is
placed relative to the pd patch that reads the file. With 0.36 I CANNOT
FIND THE FILE :-( ... meaning that relative path does not work.
The only way i can find it is if I start PD directly from the /bin
directory or to use the absolute path - which is not a good thing.
I am not using a 'installed' version of PD but rather an installation
placed in my user dir (Linux).
What should I change to return this to 0.35 state?
