Schope 1.54 interface issue in Digital Performer 6.02

I purchased and downloaded the Schope AU plugin today and the interface doesn’t seem to work in DP6.02 - most of the control knobs and sliders don’t respond to the mouse.
It does however work fine in 6.01; but 6.01 is buggy and hangs a lot for me in general and i’m not going back. I replicated this problem on 2 computers. An intel core2duo imac and a g4 powerbook.
any leads or thoughts?

ps… probably unrelated, but in checking to make sure i have the newest version, i noticed a version naming discrepancy (see bottom of screenshot):
