Strange, which debian version are you using ? (actually sid comes with
the CVS pd version because of the jack support, same with the Planet
CCRMA package).

Either the problem is specific to your system or the bug has been
introduced recently.

regarding 2)

Yes regression tests would be a good thing, but it is unlikely that
you can write a regression test that catches the bugs you mentioned.

Anyhow, the first big task that has to be done in CVS now is
to merge with 0.37.
