[PD] file access audio glitches

I'm not even certain this is a problem across all operating and sound
systems; it certainly is a problem on my setup with OS X. Any sort of
file access has the possibility (*probability* on the first access to a
given file) of causing audio dropouts. For instance, if I use [tunetof]
to load in new scale data, the first time I access a given scale file,
there's a dropout. Subsequent accesses of that same file don't seem to
I currently just switched to PD 0.40.3-extended, but this has been
happening for as long as I can remember -- several versions back.
Is this behavior common across PD, or just something intrinsic to OS X
or my sound hardware?
Also, is it some kind of file caching that's keeping subsequent access
to a file from causing dropouts?
