Just checked with Pd-extended 0.42.5-rc1 on Mac OS X 10.5.8/Intel  
using 'ladspa-cmt' pacakge from Fink.  I get no crashes.  I do  
randomly get this message: "error: plugin~: plugin not found".

If I convert all the 'print' messages to 'info', then I get the inlet/ 
outlet info from the left outlet.
