[CM] Grace freezes on sprout

ok for sure you need to do an svn update as i had not actually committed the new error hook code for the latest sndlib!!!

please do this so we are on the same page:

cd cm
rm -rf sndlin
premake4 clean

that will pull the latest sndlib tar ball and compile everything. the start the app and try that example, perhaps it won't crash.  the reason that grace is probably racing is that it is in a tight loop because the C side never sees the error return value.

let me know if this fixes it or not.  lots has changed so you should expect issues to come up. I'm not adding any new features until its as stable as last spring.
if it ever does this you can go to the Eval menu and select Interrupt Scheme (assuming you will get enough cycles to use the mouse.) on OSX you can press Command-K and this will do it more quickly.

also when the queue is empty it will print a "queue is empty" to std:out -- if you don't see that after an error or when all processes are done then its probably racing.
