[PD] Weird mouse click bug

I'm on winxp, and I wonder if anyone else has run into the following 
After working on a lot of different patches in pd-ext, and opening multiple 
patches at a time (say 18 at a time), there comes a point after about 20 
minutes or so when I'm working in a patch and all the mouse bindings 
get wacky.  For example, I might click the "x" on a window to close it, and 
instead of closing the window I get a number box hanging from the mouse.  
Or maybe I go to click "File->Save" and it brings up the audio settings.  
In fact, the only way I can get out of Pd at that point is to open the 
task manager and kill the wish84.exe.

This doesn't happen every time I use Pd.  If I'm working a lot in a day, it 
might happen once or maybe twice.  I've never had anything like this happen 
in another program so I don't think it's my hardware.

Any ideas?
