hm... then obviously we misunderstood each other in the previous thread.
anyway, you found a bug and it is in the tracker now. 
i hoped, that i can get rid of the startup options with [declare], so
that pd doesn't need additional flags for running netpd. but this means,
that it is not possible (or i need to add a [declare] in every patch and
every abs, which is a bit awkward).
