[PD] cut and paste bug with [clone] object

ha, good catch. the reason is that when you save a cloned abstraction, the clone object is 'updated' by simply cutting and pasting it. as a consequence, the copy buffer is filled with the clone object. 
I already have a working fix (https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/310) but I have to rewrite it to make it prettier :-) I'll do this with a couple of other bug fixes/improvements for [clone] when I finally find some time... the code was actually for a different issue (cloned abstractions are closed on saving) but it would also fix your issue (because the [clone] object isn't cut anymore).

Betreff: [PD] cut and paste bug with [clone] object

Have noticed this bug a few times now:

1) Go inside a [clone] patch, and copy one of its objects.
2) Save the clone patch. 
3) Paste the clipboard to a new patch somewhere.  - The parent clone patch will be pasted, not the object which was originally copied.
