this is of not much use unless you want to debug the pd<->gui connection.
"-v" (for verbose)
"-v -v" (for more verbosity)
other flags you might want to check (in any combination)
"-nogui" (see whether Pd can start without the gui)
"-nosound" (does the sound-card give you trouble?)
"-noprefs" (stupid preference file?)
my bet is, that your soundcard is the culprit, e.g. Pd doesn't handle
the case well, where you only have half-duplex (e.g. playback only) and
your are using alsa. if that's the case ("-nosound" should run ok), try
"-noadc" or "-nodac" (without the "-nosound"))
