In your home folder there is a Library folder which contains a subfolder
with crash logs.  There will be one for Pd in there which you can zip and
post to the list.  That will show exactly where the crash occurs.

On OSX most of the pix_film crashes come from 3rd party codecs installed
like Perian or Divx.
