Bug Report – Colorpicker + Fullscreen jit.window

In the following patch, going to fullscreen and back with a colorpicker window open results in the appearance of a garbled colorpicker. This causes severe lockups and on one occasion prevented any part of the Finder UI from responding to clicks, requiring a hard reboot.

OS X 10.7.3, Max 6.0.4, 2.66 Ghz Intel Core i7 with Nvidia GT 330M 512MB.

Hi David,

Could you post the patch? Funny, I was just trying to track down this bug…

A similar effect (though less severe) seems to happening in other occasions when switching to fullscreen and back. In this case a long thin tool-tip type bar, empty except for a red x at the left side, appears at the bottom of the screen just above the dock. This disappears when the x is clicked with no ill effects. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to replicate the circumstances in which it appears.

I have been encountering the problem described above on a number of different 10.7/10.8 computers running max 6.1. Specifically the ‘tool-tip type bar’ described above. This occurs when going fullscreen with a jit window for the first time. Once the bar is closed it does not re appear while the patch is still open. Has anyone found the exact cause or solution of this issue?

exactly the same problem here. I can reproduce it always. Because this little bar/floating window is not saying anything helpful any help is appreciated.
best, johannes
