I don't have any trouble with [udpsend] either. It's [netsend 1] that 
can't broadcast (neither in Pd Vanilla 0.42.5 nor Pd Extended 0.42.5)

That sounds very reasonable, but then how comes that [udpsend] can 
broadcast packets and [netsend 1] can't (on the same system, same 
machine, I've tried both right now)?

My guess is that either
A) [netsend 1] is doing something wrong, trying to do something that is 
not really necessary and that requires some permissions that the program 
doesn't have
B) it is printing a wrong error message and the failure is not really 
due to a denied permission.
