[PD] abstractions $ variable inconsistency

Hello all,
I think I have encountered a strange cross-platform (or cross-version)
inconsistency, maybe someone can correct me:

I have an abstraction:

[abs 1] //// abs is the name of the abstraction and 1 is an argument

and inside it I have:

[r on$1]

SO, when i send from a message box in the main patch the message:

; on1 5

I would expect to receive the number 5 in the abstraction.


In OSX in a powerbook ppc / Pd-0.41-2 .................................it
works perfectly!
In Windows XP (64bit quadcore) / Pd-extended-0.39.3 ............it doesn't
It says error: on1: no such object.

I will probably try it in fedora tomorrow and let you know...

Any ideas why, does this feature usually works for windows users?
attached is a small example patch if anyone would like to try...
