Thanks Luke. In fact this is what I tried first of all. On MacOSX  
10.5.5 (intel) with Pd-0.40.3-extended when launched from command line  
wish shell quits. On 10.4.11 (power PC) with Pd-0.40.3-extended it  
doesn't manage to find wish. This led me to assume that building from  
source might fix these issues.
If I can't overcome these difficulties I think the best course of  
action is , as you suggest, to use the "startup flags" box, and launch  
the patch from "login items" in the MacOSX system prefs,
