I am more of a Maya guy than a MAX guy but, as I recall, Physique works better with Biped than Skin does. Switching modifiers may fix the problem.

You apply it the same as Skin; select your mesh and then pick Physique from the modifier list. Then, you can select the Biped node to attach to.

I know it's a drag to re-do your envelopes, but it may fix the problem, and in the long run I think it will make your project a lot easier to handle.

yeap KevinKraeer is right, biped with skin will give you all this kind of headaches, that happend to me too, if you want to use skin then you should use bones, but if you want to stick with the biped, then use physique which is meant to work with biped
