The bug, syntax noted, is a known one of the singleton implementation
developed on this list. Of course the simple workaround is to never
close the patch that created the singleton(s). You can look for this
by watching the outlet of singleton.pd IIRC. 

Yes, that's a crude suggestion, but as long as we don't have a real
closebang I don't see a solution to decrement the instance counter
[value] if an objects is deleted and create a new one, if the counter
has reached 0 again.
