Unwrap UVW Issue driving me crazy!

Ok the usuall problem, i keep posting in one form or another and noone ever seems to know whats going on...

Anyway this scenario is a little different.

Ok the problem stems from changin the map channel in the unwrap modifier, after changing the map channel the modifier seem to not respond to my maxscript...

Ok heres my code....

 myobj = $  -- just for testing...
 modPanel.addModToSelection (Unwrap_UVW ()) ui:on
 myObj.modifiers[#unwrap_uvw].unwrap.setMapChannel 2 --script goes bung after here!
 subobjectLevel = 1					
 myObj.modifiers[#unwrap_uvw].unwrap.edit ()
 myObj.modifiers[#unwrap_uvw].unwrap5.setSelectedGeomVerts mySelection --this doesnt work when not on map channel 1!!! WHY?!
 myObj.modifiers[#unwrap_uvw].unwrap.moveX 0

There must either be serious bugs with the unwrap modifier or im doing something so stupid i cannot figure it out :|

Any help appreciated.


EDIT: Odd, seems to work in a blank script, could it be something such as a rollout?

Ok this is even more crazy.

If i use either Try() or undo() or use them together, the script does not work. Any ideas why this is? Any work arounds?

	undo on

			subobjectLevel = 0
			modPanel.addModToSelection (Unwrap_UVW ()) ui:on
			$.modifiers[#unwrap_uvw].unwrap.setMapChannel 2
			subobjectLevel = 1					
			$.modifiers[#unwrap_uvw].unwrap.edit ()
			$.modifiers[#unwrap_uvw].unwrap5.setSelectedGeomVerts #{1..15}
			$.modifiers[#unwrap_uvw].unwrap2.syncTVSelection() --sweet fix!
			$.modifiers[#unwrap_uvw].unwrap.moveX 0	

catch (format "Align U 0 Error: % \n" (getCurrentException()))

Just a thought, stab in the dark if you will, but do you need to turn on map support and adding some map verts for channel 2 before adding the modifier?

 mesh/polyop.setMapSupport $ 2 true
 mesh/polyop.setNumMapVerts $ ((GetTriMeshFaceCount $)[1]*3)

I already have channel 2 mapping data. Ill give it a try with vertex color chanel see if that has the same probem
