I have figured it out
It is something to do with selecting faces or solids. But since i only use solids it and it default selects surfaces. This goes wrong when edit a existing material.

Would it be a idea to add a property in the preferences what is the default setting? Even a 'hidden' one in "Tools>>Edit Parameters>>Mod>>Fem>>...(general probably?)" would be great.

just to get it right. The problem is you do use the wrong selecting by accident. Thus you would like to have a property which defaults the selection to solid any time a material reference will be edited. This would just a matter of some coding.
