I believe, the comment displacement is a bug, that was fixed in later
versions. I cannot reproduce it. Do you have an example patch? 

Howver there are some other "glitches" possible in Pd.

Pd patches keep a coordinate system with the origin (0,0) at the upper
left corner. You can see the coordinates, if you look at a patch in a
text editor. Now if you move objects into the negative area, that is,
very far to the left or top, Pd will get confused.  You can force this
for example by opening any patch like "01.PART1.hello.pd" from the
docs, then "select all", grab the objects in the lower right and push
them to the upper left, so that most other objects are now outside the
visible patch. 

After that operation, the Menu you get with a right-click will be way
off the mouse position. 

The fix: Never move objects outside the left or top window border.
