great, thanks a lot Hans!

btw it gave me the occasion to rebuild pd and some extensions from 
source on hardy...

Actually i am having troubles with Gem, pix_record and libquicktime
after some investigations i noticed that libquicktime1 provokes a 
segfault of pix_record
libquicktime1 comes from archive.ubuntu.com hardy/universe

something else which is rather strange:
i use pix_record to store as a jpeg mov file 800x600 pictures but once 
written the movie file actually display 800x608 frames (and a beautiful 
8 pixels wide green stuff). I can trim them later on with mencoder so 
not a big issue, but i wish i could understand why this is happening.
