Ah, so this would classify as "utterly stupid" on my part ;) It also 
explains why I couldn't find any other instances of this problem on the 
web, as no one's been quite this daft in the past. I assumed that I 
needed to set the device programmatically, as I've become accustomed to 
on Linux and Windows. I never thought that it might just work. It might 
be good to have a note in the helpfile to clarify this.

Anway, thanks for the answers.


P.S. Pd on OSX is sexy with the beautiful font rendering
