[PD] netpd server crashes

My interest has been piqued by netpd and a bunch of us here have been 
playing with it. It's pretty fantastic --- there's only one caveat, 
which is that the netpd server crashes and pretty easily at that. I've 
seen the netpd.org server crash a bunch of times now. I downloaded and 
installed the server patch on an ubuntu Gutsy machine and that crashes 
similarly. I looked at the patch --- nothing too complex. I suspect 
there is nothing wrong with the patch itself.

I'm suspecting the problem is with netserver, written by Olaf Matthes . 
I suspect this because netsend~ and netreceive~ crash in my use in 
similar ways to what I am seeing now with netpd --- Olaf Matthes wrote 
those too. I was wondering if anybody could confirm or refute that 
netserver is what is crashing netpd. It would be great if we fixed this. 
In general I think we have a problem with some externals involving 
network communication and if we fixed this in several of the externals 
maybe we would solve a bunch of problems at once. I might be up for a 
shot at it myself.


P.S. Some of us tuned in for the netpd jam that we thought happens every 
Thursday at 22:00 CEST. Nobody was there except us. Is this just old 
outdated info?
