Text pluging hangs up / illegal colors

text pluging (beta21) hangs up if inputing values below 0 or above 1 into any pin (except alpha and Hue) of the color join nodes.

The plugin only “comes back” after restarting the patch with valid color parameters.

It can of course be discussed if this is a problem/bug of the plugin or of the color join nodes !?
Shouldn´t be the inputs of the color join nodes be clamped between 0 and 1 ?
Or are there any thinkable applications where these “illegal” values could make any sense ?

thanks. fixed for beta>21.

i think the idea once was that exceeding values in colors can make sense in rare scenarios…
