Maybe it accepts the line while making it disappear. It has to do with how 
that line is drawn: usually, the visual line you drag is deleted when the 
internal connection is made, and then it is redrawn using the same code 
that draws lines when opening a patch.

With all that has been said, what looks broken is the procedure for 
triggering redraws. You can figure out whether it is it, or an untrapped 
tcl/tk problem, by inserting fprintf(stderr,...) in the draw-methods to 
see whether they are called or not.
