[PD] still the long load time - pd ext

There is a bug in the prefs loading of Pd in general where it'll peg  
the CPU while loading for a bit unless you specify npath and  
nloadlib.  Perhaps it is related to that?

Right now would be a good time to download and try a nightly build.   
AFAIK, there aren't any outstanding bugs.  I just installed today's  
build and ran it in Windows XP in an emulator (Parallels) on top of  
Mac OS X, and it started up almost instantly.
