i guess you are using [table] rather than plain "arrays". (or put it 
otherwise: i cannot reproduce your problem with plain arrays).

now, [table] has a 2nd argument, the size of the table which defaults to 
when you re-open your patch, [table] will initialize again to 100 (if 
you haven't specified something else).
this is very much in-line with the behaviour of most other objects: e.g. 
if you change the value of [f 100] (by sending a 3 into it), you will 
get the "100" again when you re-open your patch.

either don't use [table] but [pd table] with arrays in it.
or manually initialize your table to whatever you want.
