Receive nodes "forget" their Receive String when vvvv is restarted

For some reason when I restart vvvv my R (Value) nodes forget which “Receive String” I set them to before closing vvvv. Sometimes it will switch to nil, and sometimes it will switch to a completely different Receive String.

Am I missing something, or is this a bug?

It also seems like after I reset them to what I want and save and exit again, the next time I open the patch it remembers. I would be hesitant to use them if I’m not sure I can rely on them, which would be very unfortunate as they are quite helpful.

(forgive me if this has been posted before as I would assume it might, I can’t find any info about it via search.)

update 1:
Crap, after further testing, this doesn’t appear to be happening all the time. This has happened before though, but I can’t seem to reproduce it. Maybe it has something to do with the first time using the R (Value) node in a patch?

right. this is one of the known bugs we don’t know how to reproduce.

it usually happens once. but if you select the right receiver and save it, it stays. i rely on them alot.

if you find a way to reproduce the problem you are very welcome to let us know.
