Yes, it happens in both vanilla 0.39-2 and extended 0.40.2 as far as I
can tell. I am cc'ing this to Yves as well since I thought he might
want to know about it, and I am going to post the bug report on
sourceforge right now.
So here's what it looks like as far as I can tell - if [playlist] has
a message box connected to its inlet when it appears in a GOP
abstraction, it causes a crash upon closing the patch and discarding
the changes. There may be more to it than that but I think I at least
have this narrowed down.
I am also going to create a bug report for the [vectral~] issue since
that is also really important to my work.
Thanks for all that you do,
Seems that it's a particular gop I have that is causing the
