[PD] resyncing audio

I'm using PD Vanilla 0.40.2 under WinXP, with a Motu Ultralite
soundcard, of which I use 4 channels in and 2 channels out. I don't
use ASIO, because I coundn't in any way get more than 2in/2out
channels working with asio (with this card), and because with asio
enabled I sometimes got some pd crashes. So I enabled an option in
Motu's control panel that puts it in some sort of "legacy" mode which
allowed PD to recognise all its channels in mmio mode.

Also, I send and receive MIDI events (mention it just in case it may be related)

Every once in a while, I get a "Resyncing audio" message.
Forgive my ignorance, but what does it mean exactly?
I heard about a "-noresync" command line option, but I can't see it
listed when I type "pd -?", and also I don't know what side effects it
could have?

I'm not sure about what triggers the "resyncing audio" messages.
Every once in a while, in my patch it happens that I trigger too many
events  at the same time causing small audio dropouts (obviously I'm
trying to fix this) but I'm not sure whether that's when I get
"resyncing audio". Should I expect it to be so?

Thank you in advance
