I had something similar the other day, when i checked out "pdmtl", an  
abstraction collection from Montreal.
sometimes "gem" was loaded sometimes not, the "genhead" object was  
dotted, but if i created a new one it worked.

And the "startup" and "path" windows are a ****sorry*** mess.
I explain why:  If you want to add a new path, usually all the lines  
are occupied and not all of them (around 30) are displayes so what i  
do is :copy a line, usually change the last path-entry, and i  
separate the two entries with a ":".

There is the property List editor, but its somehow very uncomfortable  
to edit entried there....

Is sthg wrong with that ? My impression is: sometimes it works,  
sometimes it doesnt...

i think the "autogenerated" Preferences do not work a 100%, would it  
be possible to have a similar script locally, that checks all the  
folders. What was always strange to me: If you tell PD to search in a  
path, would it not be the easiest to just check all the subfolders ???
