just discovered a serious error with the [menubutton] object
(which is part of "TOF") on a recent OSX

PD: 0.50.0
OSX: 10.13.6
TOF: tof-v0-0extended (that's the only one available via "find 
externals" ...)

on loading [menubutton]'s helppatch the object crashes PD, as it will 
not be created and a Tcl/Tk error appears:

menubutton v0.12 tof, based on popup by Ben Bogart and button by ggee
(Tcl) INVALID COMMAND NAME: invalid command name ".x50ccf0.c"
     while executing
".x50ccf0.c create rectangle 26 538 158 560 -tags 50d820R -outline 
"purple" "
     ("uplevel" body line 1)
     invoked from within
"uplevel #0 $docmds"

after that, PD then can no longer be used, because the following error 
appears constantly on any mouse move ...

.x100320920: no such object 

and has to be force shut.

funnily enough the [pmenu] object from the same TOF version works !


on windows (PD 0.50.0, win 7/64), no such error is happening, but 
there's also a newer TOF version existing: tof[v0.2.1](Windows-amd64-32)
