that is the correct behavior. pd-gui does not use Tk's input per-element/widget event bindings or its z-index raise/lower features, it has roughshod approximations of some of these features implemented in C in the DSP thread - if youd like these, i'd suggest try desiredata, which has brought most of this calculation over to the GUI side of the program which solves the above problems ands make further GUI hacking much easier...:

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/pure-data co -r devel_0_39 pd
cd pd && scons desire=1
cd src && wish desire.tk

good luck and happy hacking!
