Btw, "find last error" in DesireData works pretty much all of the time.

In PureData, "find last error" relies on the good will of external (and 
internal) developers to use pd_error() instead of error(). In DesireData, 
pd_error() is obsolete and deprecated.

With a little more work, DesireData's "find last error" will be able to 
actually select all objects involved in the message chain leading to the 
error! e.g.:

[metro 666]

would select the last three objects, because [metro]'s bang led to 0 which 
led to "no method for float". the start of the message chain is usually 
[metro], [delay], [gemhead] and other clock-driven classes (so [tgl] can't 
be found to be the ancestor of the error).
