Yes, number atoms too, but not num2. The thing is that I'm not doing 
that much. Processor load is below 5%, I'm recording to an array and 
playing osc~, that's it. In exactly the same situation it works 
sometimes, sometimes no.

devel_0_38 fixed it or caused it? I tried devel_0_38 but none of my 
externals would load even after rebuilding them, but that's some other 
issue. If devel_0_38 fixes it I'll try to figure that out.

When the redraw stops working the only way I've found to get it working 
again is to do a total reboot, so it seems like this may be related to 
something that's not getting reset or unloaded between Pd sessions.
