Max 5 Crash – CTRL+Double-Click on Send Object

Good morning,

Max 5 looks pretty sweet so far, but I’ve run into a number of crashes. Some seem to be my own (they don’t happenif I disable the loadbang using CTRL+SHIFT when loading my patch), but others are definitely Max.

Summary: Max 5.01 (34740) crashes in response to CTRL+double-click on a send object

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new patcher
2. Create a new object (CTRL+SHIFT+O) and click on object
3. Type “s SOMEWHERE” in the new object box
4. Hold down CTRL and double-click on the object box.

Expected Results:
I expected that a list of destinations for the send object would be displayed.

Actual Results:
Max crashes and the generic Windows crash messages shows up, “MaxMSP has encountered a problem and needs to close…”

This didn’t occur in Max 4.6.3.

The problem also occurs when there is an associated receive object in the patcher. I thought the bug might have something to do with populating a list of destinations when none had been created.

I first noticed the problem when I CTRL+double-clicked a send object in a much larger patch.

I’m running Windows XP Tablet PC edition 2005 (SP2)

I’m getting this too. It also happens with [r].

This will be fixed for the upcoming 5.0.2 release.
