Most of the time Pd even quits, when the "double free" message
appears. I have found no reliably way to reproduce the hanging Pd,

Anyway a "Ctl-C" in the Terminal or a "killall pd" "fixes" it just
fine as does not using xsample with pool at the same time. (I didn't
try Thomas' compiler fix yet.) So even in an installation settings is
not something impossible to work around IMO.
