[PD] starting [pd~] causes: tcl: /usr/lib/bin/pd.tk: can't open script

I filed this into the bug tracker:
As I mention in the bug tracker, you can get around the problem by adding
/usr/lib/bin -> /usr/lib/pd-extended/bin
/usr/lib/extra -> /usr/lib/pd-extended/extra
/usr/lib/docs -> /usr/lib/pd-extended/docs
Anyway, after all that I seem to get better performance with the old model
of running separate Pd instances. I'm not communicating audio between the
instances so running separate instances and using sockets to communicate
between them continues to be a fine solution for me.
