mouse klicks and key commands - slow reaction? quad core problem with max?

    Hi , I patched a video mixer on a intel core duo 2.8 Ghz laptop. it renders approx. 15 frames per second. now using the patch on my new quad core i7 2.3 Ghz it renders something like 20 frames per second, but the mouseklicks and key commands to use the patches interface show the longer the patch runs a delayed reaction. like this the patch gets unusable.
    I also experienced this interface delay on other patches on some of my students machines.
    Has anyone a clue how to get the machine reacting properly again?
    To me it seems to be either a multicore problem or a osx 10.7 problem with max. (Still using max5)

      I had the same problem with a computer running Snow Leopard. It seemed to be connected to Gen~, everytime I was patching the user interfaces would stop showing visual feedback at all.
      6.0.4 seems to have fixed that mostly but I still get a lot of crashing problems with Gen~.
      I guess it's just teething problems for the new language.
