when starting pd from a user console, pd find a .pdsettings file in your home folder that provide some configuration.
when sparting pd from rc5, pd did not find this file, so it start with default configuration.

i suggest to start pd -noprefs -alsa -other_configuration in your script so that it can work whatever user is starting it.
