subpatches are opening on the top in openbox, but file open 
dialog, quit and close confirmation messages are opening on the
top of Pd console. If console is hidden under, is quite 
difficult to find it. It is good habbit to have iconsole on 
eyes anyway, but can imagine how frustrating can be searching 
that little message under lots of openned windows. This brings
people on bad habbit : using all the time Ctrl+Shift+w or 
Ctrl+Shift+q. Dangerous.
