can anyone here get patcher running moderately stable?
How much stuff are you running? I've never had it crash it on or be unstable but the most I've ever used is like 5-6 modules maximum.
The problem arose when they found out the design of patcher takes up a lot more CPU then direct loading the modules. They did a work around in 10.10 to get it running faster, but it made it more unstable. They suggest reporting (in a lot more detail then you just gave us) all instabilities on their forum.

Small question: why does my peak meter go up 0.5-1 dB when I put a Parametric EQ2 on the master bus without twisting a single knob?
PEQ2 is not phase linear. You are getting phasing even running it with nothing on it. People have mentioned it quite a bit before, but trust me in knowing that it is near the realm of negligible destruction. It is part of that EQs "color" if you will.
Most EQs will have a similar effect, especially analog ones. In any case, why do you need a blank EQ on the master buss? The only reason to have a blank EQ is if youre just using the main gain knob on it as an additional volume control for that buss. If thats what youre after, then I suggest using PEQ1 because its more transparent.
