MIDI seems to die inside Max if there's no activity for a few hours

This has now happened to me enough times over the last few months that I’m suspicious there’s a problem inside Max (I’m seeing this with Max 5 and right now I don’t know if it’s happening with Max 6)

The symptom is that if I leave my computer alone for a few hours with Max patches up, those patches no longer appear to work when I come back to the Mac again. By throwing in some raw midiin objects, it turns out that Max is no longer receiving MIDI from my keyboard. However, if I run the Snoize MIDI Monitor app, it does indicate that MIDI events are arriving at the computer.

Quiting Max and restarting it corrects the problem.

Strange.
