They load because they are built-in so Pd doesn't need to go to the OS
filesystem to find them. It's only when the name is used as part pf a path
(like C:/pd/extra/<~.dll) that the problem shows up. I would suggest using
[lt] and [gt] for 'less than' and 'greater than' as is done in many
assembly languages.
