Thanks Chris for calling attention to this.

This is my bug - I just fixed it for you and sent the fix to Miller. The
next 37 test release will hopefully include the fix and you will see junXion
appear when you -listdev -- I have it working here and junXion 1.0's two
ports show up fine with the fix. So, hang in there and soon you'll be able
to have it work.

The fix will also enable interapplication communication with pd in general,
enabling everyone to drive pd with their sequencer or other app if desired.
