I recently did some work on the moonlib/image object.  It works well for me on Mac OS X and Ubuntu, but I haven't tested it a lot.  Its included in Pd-extended 0.43.  I don't know about 0.42.

I think it might be related to folders permission, but the issue is different on each single osx machine and I don't have a mac to debug.
