[PD] clarification on [coll] object - doesn't seem to be global

hi folks just a quick clarification on cyclone's [coll] object that i'm
using in PD. i named mine [coll list] and i've loaded a text file into it.
however, it seems like updates to the [coll list] object only seem to carry
through all the coll objects in the active patch window. if you have a 'pd'
subpatcher or you're in a subpatcher the changes don't seem to be
propagating to the other subpatchers. if i load up the same text files in
those subpatchers, they act like separate instances and are independent. as
i recall the [coll] object in MaxMSP worked globally in all patch and
subpatch windows as long as the name was the same.

so i don't know if this is normal behavior but i need a global list of
parameter names and values that can work through subpatches. i don't think
textfile will work in this case, as i need to be able to look up text
addresses and spit out a a parameter value at that address, which seems to
be ideal for [coll]

any help or clarification appreciated! thanks in advance...
