[PD] Pd-* 0.43 hanging with watchdog: signaling pd...

This seems to be an persisting [1][2][3] problem I had already encountered:

All of a sudden I'm experiencing this again. I haven't changed or 
updated anything that I recall on the system which is debian wheezy.

Running with: -verbose -stderr -d 3


set pd_whichmidiapi 2
Pd-0.43.2 ("") compiled 22:56:26 Sep 25 2012
port 5400
TK_LIBRARY="./lib/pd/lib/tk/library"   wish "./lib/pd/tcl//pd-gui.tcl" 5400
priority 6 scheduling enabled.
Waiting for connection request...
priority 8 scheduling enabled.
watchdog: signaling pd...
watchdog: signaling pd...

[After serveral lines] of those

WARNING: connect to pd failed, retrying port localhost:5400.

Running with -nogui pd seems to start ok.

This is with various versions of 0.43 (vanilla fresh compiled, debian 
packaged puredata, pd-extended latest autobuild).

So it probably depends form something (tcl?) in the system, but what?

I tried reinstalling tcl and tk but to no avail.

Help please, I really need Pd in this moment!
