the code is up at the chuck forum at electromusic.com. i decided to separate the functions into separate .ck machines. everything worked perfectly then. Machine.add and Machine.remove. but when they are put all together and sporked in code, when removed, the notes stop processing but the last processed sample ran on for ever. actually, i tried unchucking the ugens at the end of the function and it still happened. but when called from .ck files on disk with machine.add and machine.remove everything was fine?!?
i am using linux, ubuntu. alsa build. i believe this is a weird 1.2.7 bug that has something to do with my platform or hardware.
