sorry, obviously i wasn't clear enough. i wasn't saying, that
pd-extended has problems with mutli-object libraries, but only that
currently it uses single-object externals. in order to have the same
problems as pd-extended users, i decided to install a single-object
version of zexy on my box in order to _have_ (not avoid) the same
problems, that pd-extended suffers from, just to help myself creating
pd-extended compliant patches (so possible problems would already be
triggered on my box). however, it seemed, that my installation still
hadn't all of the issues, since [>~] and [<~] were still working for

there is also the issue, that aliases are not (completely) supported by
pd-extended, afaik.
