I'm not sure if there needs to be an example patch, as this was done by
opening the 'help' file, and playing with the Lorenz subpatch.

I actually described this in a vague way, I should have said that I closed
the whole help patch, in other words, the objects should have all
been destroyed, and the audio stopped.

I will go ahead and file a bug report.
