well, like you can see on the attached .jpg, it's not that big a 
difference in a small patch like the [bang] helppatch.

but it makes a lot more "black bars" in any patch window now, which is 
ugly to watch and quite confusing when patches have lots of objects and 
connections (which they sometimes do, no matter how well tied up ...)

what's more: also the main windows font "courier" seems to look a little 
different than before (especially visible on bigger fontsizes like 16). 
which i wouldn't mind that much, but the bigger inlet sizes are hard on 
my eye.

in any case, i didn't find anything on the list concerning this issue, so:

has really nobody else experienced this ?
is this just happening on my machine ?
or is this a supposed to be a "new PD look" ?

as i said: this change was introduced in PD 0.48.1 (windows 7)

thanks for any clarifications
