I'm just curious: Is the observed behavior specific to this new version
or do older Pd's also exhibit this problem?

I tested with Pd 0.45-4 on Ubuntu 12.04 running fluxbox as window
manager. The subpatch comes to front and when I switch to edit mode, I'm
in edit mode of the subpatch.

Does that indicate it is related to the OS / window manager?
