Strange, I copy-pasted your text to a new patcher while I was running other patches that were playing movies. Didn’t reload your patch, so your metro wasn’t running. When I pressed the bang to open the dialog max stopped responding, as you described, even before pressing cancel or ok. After force-quitting max and trying again (without my own patches running) I couldn’t reproduce the bug. Max 4.5.7, Jitter 1.5.2, Mac OS 10.4.8.
When I open your patch alone there is no problem apart from a metro banging a movie at a 2 ms interval. I’d use a qmetro for this and 30 ms is probably fast enough.

Same here on xp, also using qmetro. While writing this mail I was able to
close max the normal way, but you have to be really patient ;-)
btw: I always found jitter patches, like a lot of the help files, that use
[qmetro 2] are choking max on xp while they run fine on osx. Probably has
nothing to do with it, but I thought I’d mention anyways.
