the -nogui bug is certainly annoying, the whole [initbang] [loadbang] etc timing 
is messy, but you don't have to copy back and forth to edit and run patches ...

if you have a computer running X (e.g. linux or apple with it installed) then:

  ssh -X pi at pd

[use your own RPi IP of course] to have the pd GUI open on your local desktop

if you do not have access to X then run vnc instead, and open pd from there ...

first run vncserver on the RPi (either in /etc/rc.local or via ssh), then 
connect with your choice of vnc client.

To start vnc at boot, first use vncpasswd to make a password, then add ...

sudo -u pi -i  vncserver

to /etc/rc.local before the "exit" line.
