Dear IOhannes

That seems a little harsh. Consider the following simple test patch:

#N canvas 515 93 1400 981 12;
#X msg 116 85 label space\ cadet;
#X obj 116 152 bng 15 250 50 0 empty empty space\ cadet 17 7 0 10 -262144
-1 -1;
#X connect 0 0 1 0;

Open the patch in Pd; click the message box; then try to open the properties dialogue
(with the right-click menu).

On Pd version 0.51.2 on Linux, I get a TCL error (and no properties dialogue):

(Tcl) UNHANDLED ERROR: wrong # args: should be "pdtk_iemgui_dialog mytoplevel
mainheader dim_header wdt min_wdt wdt_label hgt min_hgt hgt_label rng_header min_rng

    while executing

    ("uplevel" body line 1)
    invoked from within
"uplevel #0 $docmds"

It is true that if I open the patch and go straight to the properties dialogue
without clicking the message box first, the properties dialogue works as you say.
