hmmm, i discovered that the mime types are wrong for some files....  
i'll look into it

erm, do you want to run python scripts in PD or in the terminal?
pyext loads a script within PD... you don't need a terminal. Have a  
look at the help files, they should come with pd-extended (at least i  
hope so)

I'm sure it has nothing to do with the binary (which should work, as  
it works for me and others)
