Duplicating "baked" Cloth object crashes scene


Here's what I got. I've made a pair of nice looking curtains and baked them (created keys for each curtain) and everything's nice and clean till I try to duplicate'em three or more times. There are 5 windows in my scene so obviously it's not the very good idea to simulate each curtain for every window, so I wanted to simulate only a pair, and later tweak timing of the keys for the rest. I've 1000 frames of baked simulation. When I try even selecting those keys and move them on the timeline Max crashes.. What am I doing wrong?!

Thanks in advance!

If duplicate once works then
point cache it
Delete Cloth
Offset pointcache

Stefan! You've made my day! It worked - everything's extremely smooth and plays without ay lags on all 5 copies!!!

If it crashes Max that sounds like a bug. It's probably worth reporting it through the help menu.
