poly~/numbox bug? when creating voice

    I don't remember having read something about it and moreover I can't
    seem to find something in the archives. Sorry if it has been
    discussed already.
    There seem to be a bug with [poly~] when creating voices. Here's the
    patch I use for tests. If I create voices with numberbox it works
    great. The problem occurs when creating voices while the patch of at
    least one voice is opened.
    Can someone reproduce this:
    - close all voices patchs, then use number box to change the number
    of voices.
    result: no problem. Number of voice is changed and everything work as
    - Open any voice patch (open $1 message), then change the number of
    Expected behaviour : voices patchs close and that's it. I can still
    use my mouse.
    Behaviour : voices patchs close, but bye bye mouse's cursor. The
    mouse still works, since I can blindly select another window for
    instance, but I can't see the cursor anymore. NB. I just noticed that
    trying to click on the Max menubar seem to make the cursor visible
    PPC G5 2*2.3, and PPC G4 466, 10.4.6, Max 4.5.7
    Here's a patch for test
