[PD] That old -nogui/nosound problem on Linux ...

I have had a similar problem when upgrading from Hardy to Lucid / Natty.
In my case it was [susloop] that didn't work anymore with the -nogui flag.

I wrote an abstraction to do the same thing and my patch was working again.
It looks like some objects need updates to work with a newer OS and -nogui.
