Mental ray crashes with hair reflections

I have tried both Hair and Fur for Max 7.5 and the Ornatrix Demo. I can render reflections of hair with Mental Ray ONLY if the reflection material is not set to exclude anything. No matter what it excludes, even if it is only set to disable self reflect, mental ray crashes Max every time it gets to the first bucket that would have included the hair's reflection. This happens both when using the raytracer map or material.

Are there some settings I need to switch to? Perhaps I can send the hair to MR as splines, instead? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
