I tried to open an old patch in 4.6.2, but it consistently crashed Max. After some investigation, I narrowed the problem down to the cartopol object. When I try to create a new cartopol object in 4.6.2, Max is sometimes kind enough to return an error message before crashing. It says I am trying to open an object that has the same name as a patcher, then it lists cartopol.pat, showing it in both my Max46 directory and in Max46/max-help/. A system search for "cartopol" only shows the expected results: cartopol.mxo, cartopol~.mxo, cartopol.help, and cartopol~.help in their proper places (and also in the Max45 installation). The problem is not replicated with cartopol~ or poltocar, or any other object that I can find. Also, 4.5.7 on the same system does not have the problem. Does anyone have any clues what may be happening here?
