So, tried other things, and I see it won't be able to deal with messages
including "$0" like [qlist]. So the reason must be not related to [qlist]
or [textfile], but the way Pd handles (or doesn't handle) $0 in messages.
The only workaround is to forcely insert $0 with [makefilename], but then
all symbols have to be local.
