It's OS-dependent. In Linux you just click on Pd a second time (or third 
time, etc).

In OSX, the dock prevents this to happen, so, you have to go in Finder, 
ctrl-click, "Show Contents", and inside of that there's a "MACOS" folder 
with file named just "Pd" (no suffix). If you click on this several times, 
it starts Pd several times.
