[PD] Abstractions search path hirarchy (was: pduino-arduino trouble)

hi list,

i found the source of my problem here.
the patch was using the [arduino] abstraction.
i had it located in the same path than my patch (version 0.3), but  
another one (version 0.4) is located in

i've always assumed that pd searches for abstractions first in the  
same directory than the patch is found. that doesn't seem to be the  

for some reason pd sometimes choose to prefer the 0.4 version which  
has a different, non working bitrate set.
i've deleted the abstraction and use it now in a subpatch instead, so  
i am sure no other version is loaded instead.
