on one hand it is not a bug, as pd is a progarmming languge, like
for(;;); is not a bug, it's a feature as well as while(); so ..

but havind a simple C progarmm in for(;;) doesn't cause much trouble,
SIGINT usualy kills it ..
may be some protection should be considered for [bang(--[until],
so it doesn't cause the system such a DoS in this way..  i haven't actually tested this thing yet ..
is it really true , or somehow you can kill pd when it get in such a loop ?
