no it's not weird. it's a known issue of Pd on OSX ("fixed" in 
Pd-extended, afair) where Pd get's started in the / directory. all 
relative paths are thus relative to the root and not to your 
home-directory, nor the patch-directory nor to your mailbox).

to make your demo-patch more portable (and not clutter the /) you could 
have used /tmp/ instead of /frames/; /tmp/ is available (and writeable) 
on all good and nice un*ces.
