Got exception when trying to run a specified macro from runtime

As suggested by Bolt JasonJonesLASM,

I try to start a macro from runtime with the following code:

this.flowMachine = this.AddComponent<FlowMachine>();
flowMachine.nest.source = GraphSource.Macro;
flowMachine.nest.macro = myMacro;
flowMachine.enabled = true;

But I got this exception:

InvalidOperationException: Cannot change nested graph source after instantiation.
Ludiq.GraphNest`2[Bolt.FlowGraph,Bolt.FlowMacro].set_source (GraphSource value)

Found on Unity 1.0f3, Bolt 1.2.3, MacOS 10.12.4

The missing part from that code snipped would be to deactivate the game object before adding the component, then adding it later. It's a bit hacky though, because this feature is not yet supported completely. I have plans for dynamic macros in the future, but they're not well designed yet.
