[PD] delay on startup and startup flags under OSX

Yep, I've been getting similar delays in 10.3.9 with a modified version
of Hans installer.
I just launched Pd from the command line inside the .app/Contents/MacOS/
folder. I'm not sure if I need to pass it some other flags, but I got a
long stream of unending MIDI commentary that continues on through the
normal operation of Pd:
DebugAssert: Third Party Client: err== noErr [-536870163] [line 283,
device @ 0x1A100000 - can't get descriptor
2005-09-02 11:47:37.537 MIDIServer receiving message (running:1
2005-09-02 11:47:37.538 MIDIServer MIDI in length:1 data:FE000000
and it just keeps repeating the last two messages over and over. I even
tried switching the MIDI in to a different device. Are these statement
just part of the normal running of Pd?
Also, the -nogui flag doesn't seem to work for me, either.
I haven't noticed any problems with my Pd installation running poorly
with audio or MIDI. I'm not too concerned about it, but I hope sharing
my information helps debug the problem.

charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed hi *first question: few months ago I
was asking about a strange delay that i was getting when launching PD on
OSX. When i run Pd it opens and it takes few secs to react or to open
the clicked file. I wrote a small script to lauch pd and I realised that
on the terminal of the laucn script i get this mesage exactly when Pd
comes 'back to life' CoreMIDI: timeout waiting for MIDIServer to start
So i guess it is waiting for some MIDI device on the system to start or
respond. anyone knows how to fix this? i dont use midi at all *Second
question: in the same script i am passing PD some startup flags such as
-nogui but this doesnt have any effect. Does this work under OSX or am i
doing something wrong. thanks!
