[PD] save search path 0.43 OSX

well, just to add my experience i think i can set search paths correctly,
but i would like to add that it seems to be quite difficult to have more
than one instance of PD-extended 0.43 on the computer (trying mac OS 10.6.4
w/ 32bit and 64bit builds) making it a bit challenging to check one build's
operation/stability against another on the same computer.

for example, the help browser shows all instances of installed objects on
the computer, and then console complains about multiple versions of files
existing. i've tried deleting the extra paths that show up to limit things,
which works temporarily, but on the next startup it just reverts back to
grabbing everything it can find again. it works the same in every .43
pd-extended build i've tried so far (several version of both 32 and 64 bit
builds in Dec/Jan). putting things on other drives doesn't work either - it
will find those paths as well.
