Scalars in Pd Vanilla don't have a well-defined z-order:
1. Display a scalar square on top of a scalar circle2. Delete the scalar circle3. Undo the delete
Now the scalar circle is displayed on top of the scalar square.
Pure Data ought to retain the z-ordering in this and other circumstances. If it 
doesn't please submit a bug and I'll fix it.
