thanks for your answer. i couldn't get it to work. i must say, that
i'm not an osx user myself and the problem is probably that i'm not
too experienced with it. 
i have installed h.c. steiners newest pd.app (0.38.4). since i couldn't find
the .pdrc-file and have no idea where to put it, i just added in:
Pd -> Preferences -> Path  
the entry '.' (without quotes). suddenly the [msgfile]-[read(-problem
is still existing.

sorry for asking such basic questions:
where is the .pdrc-file in the pd.app?
what is the name of it?

if somebody has an already compiled and fixed zexy.pd_darwin, i would
really appreciate to get it.

thanks for any hints
