apparently the color scheme gets renewed when Tk "grabs" a window. if I  
change the scheme, and also something in the patch, when I try to close  
and pd asks to discard changes the color scheme gets updated (but only in  
the window that was "activated"). I guess it might be possible to include  
a message in sys_gui to bang the windows after a colorscheme message? or  
maybe to all open windows?
