[PD] numberbox bug?

This behavior exists in 0.37.1 on Win2K, bug or not...
Duplicate number & Enter: leaves 3 dots, but always sends the #.
Worse, Enter alone resets the box to 0.
Worse, all number adjustments are sent (optional on Max)
Worse, there's no ABORT. A mouse move to the sides of the box should
abort and restore the previous value.
Proposal for numberbox behavior:
1. numberbox should Optionally "always send on mouse up"
A usually static number can be resent without fiddling, and without
a bangbutton sitting there.
Adjustments can be "silent" : no intervening values sent.
Adjustments can be aborted by mousing off the box.
2. 'enter' alone should Optionally RESEND, instead of clearing.
So 'enter' isn't a DESTRUCTIVE FORCE. Think about it: what editor
uses 'enter' to destroy content on anything but fully and willingly
3. up/down cursorkeys should Optionally increase/decrease, like the mouse.
These are optional, so as to not break expected behavior.
So if somebody's already written this, please advise.
