      Bad news: Save open documents, preferably under new names, quit Max, relaunch the program.
      It's not always a compete disaster, but usually the harbinger of evil tidings, a bad omen.

      I think this is also the root of some of my troubles here. Somebody have a clue on the meaning of:
      check failed: egetfn (setport): corrupt object
      appearing in the Max print window
      Running Mac OS 10.4.6, Max/MSP 4.5.7, Jitter 1.5.2
      thanks, shawn

      thought I'd try again here...
      I'm using the "hi" object to track a USB device (info. comes across as mouse data). The "hi" object loses the device from time to time, and in many cases it requires a reboot of Max to get it back (rarely hitting "hi" with the device I.D. again fixes it). The device manages to maintain control over the mouse cursor despite being lost by Max.
      I haven't ruled out my device entirely as the problem, but I'm still puzzled by the: "check failed: egetfn (setport): corrupt object" ... and wondering if anyone knows its cause, and if it could be tied to this sporadic issue.

      i had this problem (losing devices) too with HI so i choose to use junxtion from very nice and stable. but it's an outside app. t.
