[PD] Re: external object becoming a message box after saving

This thread also fixed the problem with a new external my friend (Adrian 
Taylor) built to replace Olaf Matthes' no longer avaliable Enttec Pro 
DMX/USB interface external.

Before, it worked, but when you saved and exited after the patch had been 
activated, the object broke. The rectangular border around the object itself 
dissappeared entirely.

This new external, [dmxsend], is windows only at the moment, but seems to 
work perfectly now that it has been compiled with the additional flag.

Thanks very much,
David Kirkpatrick
