I had noticed this too - all droidparty abstractions don't work in 
recent Pd versions - but didn't yet find time to:

  * Make a simple reproduceable patch which highlights the change.
  * Do a git bisect to figure out exactly which commit breaks support.

My hunch is Miller or somebody changed something with the unsupported 
donecanvasdialog messages that those droidparty abstractions are 
(ab)using, but I do not have evidence for this yet.

Will report back here if I get some time to examine this.

If Pd's canvas object had the following property it would enable much 
more powerful GUIs to be built by non-developers: report all clicks, 
even in a GOP subpatch, even when not in edit mode.
