comment Purge command - Unable to purge disk buffers, error #-2?
I advise you to make some cleaning around ≠ versions of Xcode and recompile everything which was sticking to version 3.x. If problem changes, please upgrade your OQ, this will help.

comment Purge command - Unable to purge disk buffers, error #-2?
Beware: this isn't a complete answer to the OQ. But since the programming environment isn't completly clean (Xcode ≠ versions) this is an unachievable goal :(.

No. I didn't guess anything. From your thorough description I thought all the details were written. This was a naive expectation. Please forgive all my attempts to help. I understand I didn't guess right the missing points :(.

comment XQuartz, utf-8 and filenames
Since you don't really bring any sort of solution to the original problem, I'd suggest you to put this within comments: "Here is what I tested and failed" and not within an answer.
