#4 GUI preset handling


When you save a preset, close the GUI, reopen it, the preset name textbox is empty, you make some modifications to the patch, then write the preset name and the preset is reloaded (no clicking or anything, just writing the preset name), your modifications lost.

Suggested fix:
a) make so on GUI reopen the preset name is filled
b) make so writing existing preset name doesn't automatically load it

PS: applies also to drumkv1, samplv1

    a) only the stand-lone jack client fills the preset name on program start as the last one seen loded; however, the lv2 plugin does not: the preset state is loaded by host command.

    b) problem arises even though the warning question to save current changed state; somehow the old changed state get overridden.

    will have a closer look

    option b) has just been honored: svn trunk rev.120+ (v0.3.2.7+)

    • A slight GUI behavior change: (re)writing existing names
      doesn't load the respective preset anymore (after ticket
      by Jiri Prochazka aka. Anchakor, thanks).
