NukeX won't recognize depth from Maya 2013

I'm using NukeX 6.3v8 and Maya 2013 on a Mac. I can't get Nuke to recognize the z-depth channel no matter what I do. I can see it using FCheck if I output it to an .iff file but I can't even verify it if I output it to an exr. I've tried MentalRay and Maya Software render, both seem to work from the outside. When I set it to output as an exr file, it actually renders a separate but unreadable iff file. What am I doing wrong???

I just tested an rgbaz file out of Shake and it seems to work fine. Perhaps there is something up with our reader for Maya software or MR written iff files. I would send an example file to and file a bug on this issue.

In the mean time though I would try using other formats which support Z like EXR, TIF or RLA.
