Max objects having problems with FTM data objects

From ftm

There are a number of Max objects that sometimes don't respond well to atoms containing FTM data objects such as fmat, dict, scoob, etc.

The list of Max objects known so far is:

the Max print object doesn't know how to print the content of ftm data objects. Use ftm.print instead.
single ftm object is not routed (see Media:Route_ftm.pat)
Workaround: protect the ftm object with a "list" prefix like this:
<atom to be routed against> "list" <ftm object> <anything else>...
can't pass ftm objects
append / prepend 
be careful with single ftm atoms
zl slice 
sometimes the ftm object goes missing (see Media:Zl_slice_ftm_crash.pat)
