took me a while to find the problematic object (as soon as i was there, 
i saw the "here is the bug" sign....still, i'd suggest this for the 
award of bug obfuscating reports (it would be nice if somebody could 
make this into proper english))

anyhow, like always ;-) i would say that the bug is in the patch rather 
than in pd.

your problem is, that everytime [metro] receives a [1( (or [bang() it 
will _immediately_ start to bang. now the first [bang( will trigger the 
comparision which returns [1( which is sent to the metro, re-turns it on 
(and therefore immediately triggers a bang) and on and on...

attached is an illustration of what i mean.
