i experienced some bugs in pd verision 0.31 unter linux, here is a short

1. i still had pd close itself without asking to save the opened patches
when hitting backspace too often within a comment box...
2. after some time running pd, i couldn't save an opened patch with several
pages under "save as" -- pd always told me "open: no such file or directroy"
or something like that
3. i saved a patch with several pages and some sliders from the ggext
library and after loading that patch it came up with no connections between
the objects and no sliders at all
4. i also had the problem once, that pd overwrote a patch that had pages
with ident names (i saved the patch under "save as" before -but the pages
still had the same name) -- after saving all and reopening the patches, the
files were ident


a. i wanted to have a slider that has a range that could be set per inlet --
i didn't get that with ggext sliders - some ideas how to do this?
b. i had the problem, that the state object from the ggext library did not
work properly - sometimes it restored the saved values but most of the time
it restored always the same values, that had never been stored before
(mostly zeroes)
c. it would be very helpful to have a list of all (or at least the most
important) objects and created patches available - with a short discription
--maybe it would be a great idea to have an archive in the web where all
these are listed with links (all on one and not on 5000 different sites)
