check failed: egetfn (setport): corrupt object

Hello list,

Anyone knows what:

> check failed: egetfn (setport): corrupt object

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

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.

junxtion from
very nice and stable. but it’s an outside app.
