direct window max 6 issue

Hi all.
I want to do something extremely simple, just use direct window mode with jit.qt.grab. Patch cannot be more simple : jit.qt.grab object, named jit.window with noaccel set to 1, and a message box “window xxx” to the jit.qt. grab (xxx being the name of the jit.window).
Works as expected with Max 5.1.9
Does not work at all with Max 6.0.8 : I always get the message “could not attach to window xxx” from the jit.qt.grab object.
I really doubt this is a programming error as there is no programming at all…
I am surely missing something here, but what ?
Thanks for your help

the following patch works fine over here on 6.0.8 and 6.1.1

if this doesn’t work for you, please post your relevant system specs.

same problem here.

using max 6.0.8 on different macs
- mbp with mac os10.6.8
- mac pro with mac os10.8.3

there seems to be something broken :-)

btw. your example does not have a jit.qt.grab object

as of 6.1.3, direct-to-window is once again working for the 32 bit version of jit.qt.grab.
