[PD] total newbie question (os X configuration related)

im assuming that this logfile is from the console, so that ical 
gibberish just happened to be there. id highly doubt ical would 
interfere with PD on any level. (do you have any ical appointments 
scheduled or to-do lists with alarms, because those do run CRON, the 
unix event scheduler, but it would have to be mighty messed up IMO to 
mess up PD.

I dont have any experience with running PD on that machine, but id try 
basic OS X troubleshooting:

repair disk permissions
repair/verify the disk

if that doesnt work, make a dummy admin user and log in as them.

if for some reason PD doesnt have access to the /dev device it wont 
show up (correct right list?)

also, maybe try running PD as root and seeing if you get any further. 
good luck =)
