hmm, since Pd and SSR are only communicating via a network socket, i
only have 2 possible explanations:

- - either the network code is broken
- - or SSR sends data in a format that exposes/triggers a bug (e.g. a
memory leak) in Pd

since there are several network implementations, which one are you
using? mrpeach? iemnet??

do SSR and Pd agree on the actual protocol? e.g. OSC over TCP/IP (if
it is that) used to be badly defined in the olde days, and you still
see the deprecated non-SLIP implementation. afaik liblo only recently
changed their TCP/IP code to use SLIP.

could you get a backtrace of the crash? [1]

do you notice anything weird?
like when running htop besides Pd, do you see an excess of memory usage?

try running Pd with "-verbose -verbose -stderr"; sometimes their is a
printout when Pd is crashing, which get's lost once the Pd-GUI closes
(that is: quite immediately)
