[PD] Pd-extended bug

Running Pd(vanila or extended) on the command line on Mac OS X has  
been spotty for a while.  Maybe its fixed in 0.42.5.  The thing to try  
would be running this on Pd-vanilla 0.41.4 to see if it happens there,  
or see if Pd-extended 0.42.5 fixes it (there are autobuilds).

Please submit it to the bug tracker:
