Can't delete node without id

not quite sure, whether this behaviour is wanted or not.

when creating a node via setpatch and giving it a negative id it cannot be deleted any more.

tty renderer is giving this error message: can’t delete node without id.

not quite sure but i think, in beta 9.10 setpatch in combination with negative ids would create a node with the next free id.

you are right and i think this is not by design. it only does not work for -1 every other negative integer works for me… gregsn, joreg? what is the idea behind the -1 id?
