actually it is as 'seb shader' referenced on github, see

Unless they arrange otherwise by defining a "list" method, objects respond
to the "list" message by distributing the arguments of the message to their
inlets, except for the first argument which is passed as a "float" or
"symbol" message to the object proper.

you can easily fix your patch by using unpack or something. But you may
have a request that we add a list method to select where it only considers
the 1st item of a list. If no one actually relies on this list behaviour
you may have a point.
