Thank you.  That appears to be the problem.  In fact, I think this
solves a problem that someone posted about a month or two ago;
creation of plugin~ objects fails gracefully now if the name of the
plugin is not provided.

Is it safe to call free() on an object constructed with pd_new?
If not, how should I arrange for an object to be deleted if the
constructor fails?

If anyone is interested, I can post my (small) patches to plugin~ once
I've tested it a little better.
