urps, i think i have explained it somehow wrongly:
when i save a patch that contains open sub-patches (no abstraction
(*.pd-file) and not necessarily containing ~objects) there are no
then i close pd.
then i open pd.
when i reopen the patch, pd crashes (while trying to pop up the
sub-patch, i think)

when i save a patch containing closed sub-patches, i have no problems at
all. so i can then open my sub-patches...

the behaviour is not related to Gem/GriPD (i don't have gripd installed
on my home box, and i use Gem only on demand)
but anyhow, i do a lot of hacking around in the pd-code, so maybe this
behaviour is related only to my private version of pd.
