stubbornly i refused to reboot my machine, but after a bit of wandering 
i ran "top" only to discover that pd had just as stubbornly failed to 
quit (even though it wasn't appearing on my desktop, application 
switcher, or dock). so i killed it, restarted pd, and viola -- 
pdp_ieee1394 is working again!

not sure why this happened in the first place, but if anybody else gets 
stuck like this, run "top" and see if pd is still running in the background.
