Message 1: past participle agreement with say-verbs

Subject: past participle agreement with say-verbs

I'm working on past participle agreement in central Italo-Romance dialects.
Does anybody know of languages in which the marking of participial agreement
with transitive say-verbs actually differs from default conditions? I have
already seen P. Munro's paper on Transitivity and say-verbs (Synt&Sem 15
1982), with the main literature hinted at there, but I did not find nothing
specific about the topic.
Thank you very much in advance.
