[PD] pd-ext 39-2 rc4 (deb package) crashing with gop editing

I am so sorry, I have sort of misreported here.. I have narrowed it
down now.  Seems that it's a particular gop I have that is causing the
crash.  Within that gop, what is causing the crash is yves' playlist
object having a message box attached to it.

I have attached a stripped down version of the gop to demonstrate the
error.  It seems that what causes the error, at least for me, is
having any kind of message box connected to the [playlist] object,
then closing the patch and saying yes to discarding the changes.  I
have attached the example.  In its current state it will not crash pd
after you create it and close the window.  Connect any of the message
boxes or the toggle, save it, create it again and it will give you the
crash when you close the window - at least it does for me.  I should
also note that it only happens when this is a gop.  I tried connecting
a message box to a playlist object in a normal patch and it didn't
crash when I closed it and discarded changes.

This is a weird bug.  As for the logic on why this crashes I have no
idea.  Please let me know if there are any log files I can check to
clarify this for you.  In miller's 0.40, the crash doesn't happen at
all with the gop abstraction.

I am sorry to take two emails to get this right (twice really because
my last bug rept about vectral~ needed clarification as well).  From
here on I will think twice or thrice and hone my deductive reasoning
before posting about bugs.
