It has other problems. (version 0.3.2)

1. The 'snapshot of actual connections' doesn't work correctly.

  Simplest example: connect capture_1 to playback_2, capture_2
  to playback_1, make and save the snapshot, then activate.

2. It doesn't let you update (overwrite) and existing saved

3. It doesn't allow you to activate a patchbay until it is saved.

Most times when I want to use the patchbay I don't want to save
it at all, just use it for some time. 2+3 lead to a collection
of unwanted patchbay files in my home directory. 

Both 2+3 and the problem reported by Salvatore could be
solved by having 'Update' and 'Reload' buttons instead of
the forced persistence.
