I just noticed after banging my head quite a while on the initialisation
procedure of a fairly complex patch, that the "folder" object outputs
first the append messages on the left outlet, ****** then *****
the number of items in the folder, on the right outlet.
Which appears kind of a crime in the right-to-left-ruled max world.
but ok, maybe the hidden law in max is not to take anything for granted,
Is it just a bug, or is on purpose?
I didn't find any mention to this in the reference manual.
