I just did a fresh checkout of devel_0_37 but I still have dropouts when 
using soundfiler to load stuff into tables.

but the output looks fine (except for the watchdog barking when loading
very large files or switching screens to the pd gui screen):

combat:/home/x/audio/sw/pd/pdevel-0.37# ./bin/pd -rt

that should be  [; arrayname resize size ( shouldn't it ?
I enabled this too when ./configuring but still get clicks when resizing.
