I don't know what we did, but for the 16:9 installation currently on
display in the Deutschlandfunk, Cologne (images i.e. here:
http://footils.org/cms/show/63) we are running Pd-extended over
Jack on OS-X with 60 channels. I think, it's a pretty standard
Pd-extended, so maybe this already includes your bugfix.
