the change seems to have been on purpose [ec179065].
but it seems that the help-patch has not been updated accordingly.

afaict, there has neever been any Pd-release that included the "range"
message (although some test releases - 0.48test1,2,3 - did include it)

btw, the bug can be pretty easily found when running Pd from the
cmdline, printing to stderr:

$ pd -stderr
error: list store: no method for 'range'

the Pd-console is imply to slow to keep up with posting the errors (and
eventually will crash, because it safes all the error messages and in
case of an infinite loop it will exhaust all available memory; i think
this is far more serious bug)
