Points of Regular Polygon

Oddly enough, that may have uncovered a bug in LC 9 dp3 . . .

I thought I would set the points of a polygon graphic to the points of the
regular polygon graphic that I had exported into a scrolling list field.

But when I selected 'Polygon Graphic' from the Menu/Object/New 
Control/Polygon Graphic
(Mac OS 10.7.5: yeah, yeah, I know, 'tisn't supported for LC 9: go and 
try it on a newer Mac running
Mac OS Rocky Mountain) and no polygon graphic appeared on my stack.

To contextualise this: there is no problem if I select 'regualr polygon 
graphic'.
