That can't be it because [s-arranger] doesn't have any IEMGUIs that hold
state. There are two possibilities:

1. Some older bugger version of s-arranger is in pd-extended because I
haven't checked my changes into the official repository for ages.
Because of the way that s-arranger is patched, I find this less likely

2. There is a bug in pd-extended.
