Max opens Patches automatically after crash

Hi,
I’ve got a stupid problem. After a crash max opens the crashed patch again. in fact it would work, but because max opens in 2 times it crashes when i close the obsolete patch, with the result that it opens when just starting max again 2 times the patch.
Crazy, i never had these problems before. It happens on Mac Mini (i5 and i7 core duo) with OSX Lion and max version 10.7.
I would be glad if Max didn’t open any patches on starting just Max.

Help!!

Maybe deleting the Max preferences might help. Or maybe putting the patch that makes Max crash somewhere else might work as well.

that´s very likely the lions fault: OSX Lion has this new feature of remembering open files for each program, restoring the documents when you re-open the program (eg max with your max-patch).
i am not on lion right now, but in the system settings under the general tab there should be a toggle somewhere at the bottom saying “restore windows when quitting and reopening apps”. might help to disable, so your patch does not get loaded twice.
best, hons
