Thats what I meant with "the portaudio code of pd". Its the way pd uses
portaudio that is wrong. First, I think it uses the maximum number of
buffers. Then, the pablio (portaudio blocking I/O) thing is a bad hack,
as portaudio is meant to be used in a callback model.


PS: I have been talking with Ross about this and he sort of agrees, he
is sitting in my office.
