Summary: [bugfix]: non-2^n-BS bug

Initial Comment:
I'm really not a 'spammer'! ...nor a hypochondriac...
I've tested several versions of pd (0.42.5 - 0.43.3 (ext/van)). None of them is working with non-2^n-BSes!

On the mailing-list ( http://www.mail-archive.com/pd-dev@iem.at/msg11344.html ), Claude Heiland-Allen states that it is already implemented..
(Thanks Claude) But I can't confirm that. I've tried the patch he posted there, - without success: The blocksize is always rounded to the next bigger power of 2, it seems!
I don't know what he's on, but I'm on windows. Maybe that makes the difference..
(Is this a hardware- or Os-dependent feature..??)

Please take a look at the attached pd-patch. It's my attempt to work out the problem..
If someone could give me a resonable answer, I promise I'll never come back again ;) ...for this issue...

PS: It feels a little annoying if one does not get a real response or not a response at all! (Eg. look at the feature requests. The last one on the 1st page is like 2 years old, so you can't say there are too many to respond to each one..). 
This especially is true if the response is longer than the acual answer like "Yes", "No" or "I don't know". That would have been a big help for me already. Although it's not making the bug disappear automatically...
Anything like if it is a useful/good idea is something I'd like to know, when posting something, for exapmle..
But no, I won't be scared away so easily..

I'm curious to find out what blog platform you're utilizing? I'm
experiencing some small security problems with my latest blog and I would
like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?

feel free to report oddities as bugs - and please report each oddity as a
separate bug (in the bug-tracker rather than follow-ups on this ticket)

als make sure you report issues and don't ask questions like "how does this
work?" :-)

(and if you want to discuss the tracker/forum/mailinglist/IRC thing, please
join the mailinglist and/or the IRC...!)

...oh now it's here...
Just in case you're working on BS-things anyways I only wanted to mention
that I have some more BS-related oddities. If you are interested, I can do
a search and gather them.

If you are talking about the hurleur-forum, I always thought that was not
the right place for the devs?!? ..I haven't been there for a while ...since
I have no problems with the installation... ;)

I never wanted it to be only a question.. and it finally turned out to be a
real bug. ..after the third try to convince you... ...I do what I can to

@op: if you don't feel comfortable with the mailinglists, why not use
another support-channel (IRC, forum?)

the sf-trackers are here to track bugs and issues, not questions.

indeed i can confirm the bug (as discussed on the mailinglist).
i'll attach a (simplistic?) fix that appears to make it work with current
git (and this time i tried hard to avoid introducing trailing whitespaces)

I didn't know about that. I find the lists to be a little confusing.. There
are so many, with all the archives. And sometimes some posts (from sf) only
occur at the archive if I'm not mistaken..???
But I'll take a closer look...
Anyways, did you (or someone else) take a look at the file??

Oh and just let me take this chance to thank you very very much for this
brilliant piece of software. This is far more than programming. If it
wasn't that good, it wouldn't have take me that much time... ..I mean I
wouldn't have spent it...

Sorry - SF is a pain for me - can you follow up on the mailing list?  That
way more people will
be able to find the long thread that will doubtless ensue.
