I am not sure why i was getting all that strange behavior. It must be 
something with Tcl/tk already having been installed as 8.4.4. I went 
through with the OSXPM again and deleted everything and reinstalled pd 
again from stretch and now things mostly seem dandy. I was using that 
Batteries Included Tcl/tk installer for my python stuff.
Now that i am dumbed down totally to 8.4.1 things seem okay. Thank god 
for that OSXPM or i would never had been able to track down all that 
tcl stuff to delete.

double clicking still doesn't work but the Open dialog box from WISH is 
okay now.

I downloaded GEMOSXCVS.gtar and ended up with something called 
I am guessing that goes in in a folder someplace? Hmm...
