There are so many ways to bring Pd to its knees by doing funny patching, 
that it's a good idea to hit Ctrl+s often, especially when I have many 
patches and subpatches and am bound to forget what are the changes I made 
since last crash. It's quite often not Pd's fault at all. Whether I do 
infinite recursion, boundless [until], flooding the console, testing a new 
external I wrote too quickly, or do something well-defined that just 
happens to want 50000% CPU, it's all the same, Ctrl+s, Ctrl+s, Ctrl+s, ...
