This is true. Although, I wouldn't call translating an object by 3 pixels exactly breaking compatibility. I do agree it is a nuisance nonetheless, yet I feel it is a necessary part of pd(-l2ork) growing and becoming more consistent. The reason why I did what I did in pd-l2ork is best portrayed if you use autopatching option which positions everything in line vertically. If you autopatch objects like atom, then hsl, then another atom (or symbol or simply an object), you'll see how things align (or don't).

Now, if an object does not render properly in pd-l2ork because of this translation, then what is needed is simply nudging it in the opposite direction. However, if the object appears within the GOP boundaries but is still not visible in GOP window, then there may be some stale things I missed in the getrect call for hsl. In this case, please do file a bug report.

Best wishes,
