i experienced similar issues with pd on osx quite a few times. the most
common symptom was a short noise approximately every half second.
whenever i encountered something like that, it helped to install jack
and run pd -> jack -> coredaudio (instead of pd -> coreaudio). don't
know if this can be generalized as a solution, but at least it helped in
all cases i know.
