open dialog bug


could someone explain to me, what’s happening in this little patch. If i use opendialog, i would expect that all the following actions start AFTER something is sent out from one of the outlets of opendialog. But this is not the case… Do i misunderstand something more general here?? Thanks for your help.

Overdrive may play a role here. You might also have a look at the deferlow object. With me it works fine with overdrive on.

that’s right. And the patch works with overdrive off and deferlow after opendialog, too. But i don’t really understand the logic behind it. Anyway, thanks for your answer.
