[PD] running vanilla with Tcl 8.5 on OSX

I updated the Wish binary aka MacOS/Pd in the Pd-0.46-0 from Miller's site with the one from my Tk 8.5 Wish.app. Enabling the NSHighResolutionCapable key in the Info.plist isn't working though. In any case, using TK 8.5 gives me nonaliased fonts & removes the extra "Preferences" entry in the File menu.

I remember trying this about 6 months ago after I got the machine but ran into the same problem and moved on. Would be nice to provide a patch and some info on how to make it work.
