Actually I now found that [classpath] according to the help-file in
CVS/externals/hcs/classpath-help.pd does something different than
[declare -stdpath]: It's not used to *set* the path, but to *get* the
searchpath with an interface similar to [textfile]: Each bang sent to
[classpath] will make it print the next entry in the current Pd path.

So it's actually not intended for making adjustments to the path,
that's left to [declare].
