Both make Pd freeze when trying to [open( a fifo. Steps to reproduce:

1. In terminal: mkfifo /tmp/testfifo

2. In Pd:

[open /tmp/testfifo cr(  //comment: same without "cr"

3. click message

 - Pd unresponsive
 - Only repeated "watchdog: signaling pd..." from the command that
   opened Pd. (-verbose doesn't give any more.)
