I have worse news... If I open preqiew-help.pd, create a preview window, 
then close that patch, then try to create a new patch, the original 
'pdextended' process crashes (Erreur de Segmentation), while its gui 
survives (why would that be ?) and the 'pdextended -nogui' survives too.

But just after that, I noticed that merely opening the patch and closing 
it, without creating a preview window, also causes a similar weird crash 
while quitting pd. In that case, though, it looks like the main process 
«terminated normally» except that it doesn't close the other processes.
