Is that a problem...? What problem does that cause ?

Anyway, Pd does weird things with unmapped window... It deletes all 
canvas-items whenever you minimise a window. I don't know whether it was 
ever useful to save RAM back in 1995 when 16M would cost between 640 $ and 
2000 $ (remember the RAM shortage racket ?), but this behaviour is part of 
Pd, and you have to take into account, whether you use t_widgetbehavior or 

I don't remember whether DesireData preserved that behaviour, but it's 
possible that I didn't bother changing that (however, DD introduced 
additional layers so that C code would hardly know what Tk is).
