Hi Stefan,

readsf~ does not allocate memory for no reason, but anyhow, the problem
you encounter is definitely a bug in PD. (All crashes are bugs).

Anyhow, if you want to help in solving the issue faster, try the patch
you have with the latest version of Pd (0.38test10), if possible try to
figure out what actually triggers the behaviour.

File a bug report at the newly activated bug reports page:


At least this way your problems won't drown in the masses of mailing
list mails.
