[PD] Tcl/Tk error

sorry for a not so precise bug-report, but it's all i can offer:

recently i discovered a strange behaviour in Windows PD 0.49 (32bit) 
when the closing of a patch window (or even the closing of a subpatch 
window) would result in a Tcl/Tk error that i have not excperienced up 
until PD 0.49.

so, i close a window (main or subpatch - mostly with STRG+w), the patch 
window turns white with some inlet relics still being displayed and the 
console prints out a Tcl/TK error message in red colour.

the console says for example this:

(Tcl) UNHANDLED ERROR: bad window path name ".x3b212c8"
     while executing
"wm title $mytoplevel "$name$dirtychar$arguments - $path""
     (procedure "pdtk_canvas_reflecttitle" line 15)
     invoked from within
"pdtk_canvas_reflecttitle .x3b212c8 {D:/pd_0.49/_MYPATCHES_/MFPOW} 
{metronome} { [edit]} 0"
     ("uplevel" body line 718)
     invoked from within
"uplevel #0 $docmds".x2596028: no such object
.x2596028: no such object
.x2596028: no such object
.x2596028: no such object

from this point on nothing can be done in PD anymore, the only way to 
get out of this is to kill the PD process from the outside.

the patch contains several GOP subpatches and also some of my own GUI 
abstractions, that contain GOPs.

(the patch is very involved so i couldn't really check what would 
happen, if i replaced all of my abstractions with something else ...)

any ideas ? ...
