[PD] rescan audio devices

Dear list,

Is there a way to get Pd to rescan available audio devices (on OSX)?

For example, if I use my MOTU, then disconnect it (because I'm leaving 
studio and want to take laptop with me) but leave Pd open, then Pd does 
not see it when I plug it back in next time. Very inconvenient when I am 
in the middle of a project!

I checked --help but AFAIK there is no internal message there to rescan 
devices, unless --listdev does that. But Pd does not accept that as an 
internal message, only a startup flag.

Suggestions appreciated!
