** [feature-requests:#140] iemgui positioning with autopatch**

Some of the iemgui objects, such as [vsl] and [hsl], display buggy behaviours when used with autopatch. With autopatch on, if one selects an object, message, atom, etc. and then type Ctrl+1 <ENTER> hsl <ENTER>, the horizontal slider position is not centralized. The same is true for an object created after a [hsl] or [vsl] via autopatch.

I do understand that changes in the positioning of iemgui objects would cause legacy problems, but a possible solution would be to distribute a conversion script together with newer versions of pd and pd-extended. It would be relatively simple to write a script that would add or remove offset to certain objects.

This type of solution has been implemented before in other projects I am interested, such as with LilyPond whenever they decide to change the syntax.
