well, pd doesn't complain about not finding the file but rather about an 
error while parsing it.
so probably you should post your .pdrc (or at least: look hard at it) to 
see what is wrong with it.

furthermore, please note, that as with pd>=0.38 the .pdrc is deprecated 
in favour of .pdsettings (which has a completely different syntax) 
(note: .pdsettings only applies for linux; on windows the configuration 
uses the registry; on osX the application-setting-system (or however it 
is called))
so probably you are best off by deleting the old .pdrc and start from 
scratch. (you can save the current settings via the File->Settings dialogue)
