This would be easy to prevent, assuming the output device is 
sufficiently decoupled from the DSP chain. When the DSP chain has to be 
resorted, render out an extra couple of blocks of audio using the 
unsorted chain into a larger-than-normal output buffer, resort the 
chain, then pick up where the old chain left off. So long as the 
resort-DSP-chain code is vaguely aware of what's going on in the 
stuff-buffer-into-DAC code, this should work.

How does one get dev access to the PD source? I'd love to get my hands
