Ok, I get it now, there are two quit menus... I didn't get any weird 
errors with either one of them, I will have to just play with it...

Since I have tried the File->Quit, I get the same results on both (no 
crashes, yet though). I do also get the "FWAD..." message with a result 
of '1'.

It is strange that in the past day or two, I have not been seeing many 
of these bus errors, maybe I have not been running as many apps at once. 
I will try to load it up, and see if there is a memory problem (which I 
don't think, because I don't have any other apps that crash, and 'pd' 
only crashes when it quits... [on the wrong menu item???])
