try this in the shell just before starting pd from the shell:

   ulimit -s 66666

does it make a difference ? this is _the_ other big problem with GF these 
days. GF uses more stack than it used to, and the OS is pretty opinionated 
about how much stack an app ought to use... (fortunately, it's but a 
default value). And when too much stack is used, it only looks like any 
other crash (praise Linux's error messages!)
