Also, there is another thing that looks like a bug, but is about something 
undocumented. [makefilename] without an argument seems like it was 
intended to do [makefilename file.%d], but there's this same missing star:

     if (!s->s_name) s = gensym("file.%d");
     if (!*s->s_name) s = gensym("file.%d");

Because Pd uses &s_ as default value for a symbol arg, not a null pointer, 
so s->s_name is never considered "false"... same bug, really.

I don't really care about that one, nor that anyone would want to use that 
default value, and the line could also be removed altogether, and it would 
be as fine, as removing a useless line is good, and removing a misleading 
useless line is even better.
