Lots of nodes turn yellow and red when I add an empty document as a dependency.
There does not seem to actually be an error.

Open Patches/IGBM.vl in vvvv 2022.5.0-310
Go to definitions, all the nodes should be grey (no error)
Create a new blank VL document
Back in IGBM.VL go to dependencies > Files > Add existing… and add the new blank document
Some nodes turn red and yellow but upon internal inspection no actual errors.
Adding an empty document as a dependency should not create any errors.
- Save and reopen, the nodes are now without error
- I can reproduce the same bug in 2022.5.0-310 and 2022.4.11-1312
- I need to continue development on 2022.5 because I am using the new Channels feature
- This is one of those bugs that I feel only appears after your application reaches a certain level of complexity. So rather than try and reproduce from blank I thought I would send a minimum version of my application cut down enough to show the bug behaviour. These test patches are a lobotomised application that doesn’t do anything. I deleted logic and other dependencies to try and narrow down this bug and make a version I can test in 2022.4.11 as well.
