Hi Adam and Chris,

When I run pd with (and without) -rt I get it running under my user and 
not root. Not that I have tried any "intense" things yet, but I did not 
notice any sputtering either (I have noticed some without -rt) when 
running the Paradiddle examples...

I did try Chris' suggestion of running with 'sudo', and it does run as 
root. I checked these things by looking at the user for each process as 
listed under 'ps -alx'.
