[PD] makefilename crash

Just discovered this last night. Should I file a bug report?

When a float or numeric message (is this the same type as float 
automatically?) is sent directly to [makefilename %s_PD.aif], PD 
freezes, and then segfaults/crashes on the next input of any kind. I 
know this is not how this object should be used, but still PD should be 
robust enough to handle this kind of type error without totally dying.

Simply sending a text-message to the same object without using a 
[symbol] object to set the type results in a far more benign:

error: makefilename: no method for 'dave'
