thispoly~ issue or have I gone crazy?

    Hi.
    I can't retrieve the instance number from a thispoly~ object - see attached example. Don't bother with the silliness of the patch, just check out the number box inside sinesynth
    can you reproduce the problem? is it just me needing a holiday? ;)
    Thank you!

      ok, so it looks like if I connect [receive] directly to [thispoly~] the problem is solved.
      I'd say this really looks like a bug...

      actually, I don't think it's a bug. if you look at your sinesynth abstraction there is a bug on your part in it... move the loadbang object over a couple of pixels and you will see what I mean ;)

      omg... thank you man!
      no kidding, I've been puzzled all day long about this "bug"... I definitely need a holiday!!!
      sorry for the noise!

      was a pure fluke that I caught it. I was really puzzled when I opened an instance of the poly~ and the loadbang to the thispoly~ didn't give me a number, even after I clicked it manually...
      In any case, enjoy your holiday ;)
