yes, because when running from the cmdline, the space-escaping is done
by the shell, and Pd only sees as single string "Courier 10 Pitch".
when parsing .pdsettings, Pd is left alone...

so use the bash instead:

$ tail -3  ~/.bashrc
pd() {
  $(which pd) -font-face "Courier 10 Pitch" "$@"

the next time you open a new shell and type "pd", it will call it with
the current font...
