That's interesting.
I assume that you don't insert or delete lines, otherwise you would change
the object numbering.
So my question was rather if problems can arise concerning this object
Anyway, as .pd patches seem to be stored in text mode in the sf cvs my
concerns seem to be superfluous.

It does to some extent... it seems the clients (at least the gui ones)
support Unix and system native line endings.
On MacOSX it is somehow vital to use unix style.
