Yes: Everytime you have connections fanning out of a message outlet,
the order the connections "fire" is not specified. It's practically

The current implementation of Pd uses the creation order to sort the
patch cords, but that's an implementation detail which might change
anytime without further notice. So don't rely on it! Instead you have
to use a [trigger] to sort the execution order as needed. That's why
patches by Pd "pros" use tons of [t b b a b a ...] objects. ;)

See attached example patch which exploits the current implementation
to make the issue visible.
