this has been discussed many times on the list (just search the archives 
for loadbang and dynamic patching (yes, creating or renaming an object 
can be considered as dynamic patching) and i still think that this is 
not a bug (though not a feature either)

so [loadbang] bangs at patch loading time (as opposed to patch creating 
probably there is a need for [createbang] that bangs more often.

in the meanwhile, i think frank's suggestion is ok:
