[standalone] is still broken on my brand new and very expensive MacBook Pro

    This is odd. I've been getting
    * error: standalone: No such object
    for a while under MaxMSP 4.6 on my old biscuit-tin Titanium G4, and David Z. and I, after some messing around with bundles, resources, plists and stuff, concluded that it was something odd to do with the system on the machine.
    I've just installed a brand new download of MaxMSP 4.6 on my brand new MacBook Pro, and it's still happening. I can't even create a new patcher and type in a 'standalone' object.
    To paraphrase the song from Carousel: I'll never standalone.

      And, thanks to f.e. @ personalcomputermusic, I identified the embarrassing cause: an ancient standalone.txt in the search path.
