i attached a sligthly modified dir2abstractionArry.pd. it's working now
without a [delay] in pt.layerfx.pd. i tested it under osx, too. actually
it was not a gui, but a trigger issue.
to avoid these kinds of troubles, i recommend to place the outlets of
abstractions in their execution order from right to left - as pd-objs
do - in order to make the abs visibly understandable.

i hopefully can convince you, that pd always keeps the order of
execution. :-) (which is important to know in terms of elegant
