Max recently began displaying a wierd problem. None of its windows are visible. The program does not crash. Its open windows appear in the WINDOW menu list, but none are visible. Restarting Max does not help. Repairing permissions does not help. Deleting the preferences file does not help. Logging out and back in does not help. The only temporary cure is a restart of the machine. Max will then operate normally through a complete rip or file conversion, but quitting Max, hiding Max, or even letting it become the background application will cause its windows to no longer be visible until a system restart is done. This phenomenon occurs on my Power PC Mac, a 2.5 GHz Two CPU G5 running Mac OS 10.5.2. This has not yet happened on my other machine, a 2.4 GHz 15in MacBook Pro.
