the problem _might_ be, that pd ignores the command line arguments (if 
you don't see _anything_ even with "-verbose", then this should be the 
cause); i have no idae how "open" and arguments to the application works.

anyhow, once pd is running, create an object [Gem] and you should see 
you can also add the library-loading via the preferences system to pd's 
startup flags.
