...that deal with pure data

I'm working on a patch for a class project and up until a few hours ago everything was fine. I closed PD, then came back to it, but the file refuses to open. I get the "watch" symbol for a few minutes, then PD Quits all on its own. I can open larger files, and so far I've changed the file name, unistalled & reinstalled PD-Extended, restarted several times, and am pretty much out of ideas.
My computer seems to have become rather sluggish from this point on as well.
I'm using MAC OSX and the most recent edition of PD-Extended.
Any advice is appreciated...
Hmm...I wonder if maybe your [loadbang]ing an infinite loop or something. Or even worse, an [until]. Try disabling [loadbang]. Go into Preferences -> Startup and add
to the startup flags box. Hit okay and restart Pd, and see if your patch opens. If so, then you're probably [loadbang]ing something you shouldn't.
Thanks, that let me open the file! What should I look for to tell if I'm loadbanging and infinite loop?
If it's not obvious, then the simplest (though tedious) way would be to disconnect all of the [loadbang] objects and reconnect one at a time, saving and reloading the patch each time. The one that hangs Pd will be the problem. It might not necessarily be an infinite loop.
Is there a similar way to disable the [line] object from the start-up flags? I tried -noline, but it doesn't work. Any ideas?
