I have seen fluid~ crash a lot of times, but I wrote it, so this is
expected. ;) 

However, the published source code is quite stable now and now most
crashes are probably due to some conflict in the way, fluid~ was
compiled in combination with how the needed libraries were compiled.
For example, compiling flext with another compiler than fluid~ or
libfluidsynth did lead to mysterious crashes sometimes. (Doesn't have
to, though.)

It would help, if you could run Pd under the gnu debugger "gdb", but I
admit, this is a bit tricky if you have never done this before. Where
did you get the fluid~.pd_darwin? Did you compile it on your own?
Which flext version do you have installed and from where? And you do
have the fluidsynth library installed, yes?
