When you say that it doesn't load - do you mean the plugin is not being registered or that the license is not found (which is what I infer from the CGTalk thread)?
If the latter, what kind of path are you using to get to the file? By this I mean: is it a relative or full path? Usually, I use full paths:
Filename prefs = GeGetPluginPath() + Filename("default.prf");
It may be that if you are using relative paths, they need to be restructured for the new file path system, but I'm not sure what that would involve if so. And not sure why it would work on the Intel Macs but not on the PPC Macs even though the plugin is UB on both in this case.
One idea is to do some GePrint()s to the Console of where and what you suspect is causing the problem. Compile and send the modified plugin to users having the difficulty. This gives you sort of a distributed form of 'debug'. Whenever one of my users encounters a problem that I can't replicate, best to provide them with the code that you would use to test - but since they can't run a debugger, it has to be a more crude approach.
