I don't think, this particular problem was discussed many times, if at
all. The loadbang is done just fine inside the abstraction, if you
change arguments, however it does not pass through to the outlet. 
With dynamic patches, you don't get a loadbang at
all, not inside and not outside the abstraction. This is a different
issue, as there's just no loadbang generated, whereas in the first
case, there is a bang, but its progression is stopped at the outlet.

Well, not if you create abstractions manually, which will send a
lodbang and it damn sure should do so. ;)
