So I cant help further ... but Ive got the same card that i use with a motor in low precision for now, on OsX !!!
thus I might run in the same problem later ! 
I will follow the link !

>>> Hello list,
>>> I run into a special problem with MIDI input under osx...
>>> I am getting some MIDI inside Pd, the MIDI is coming from an interface-z card that is transducing a sensor.
>>> The midi info is on two control number for higher (12bit) precision. Sometimes the MSB value is not updated well, but the LSB is, and that gives me weird behaviors.
>>> I have tested the same patch with Pd-extended 0.42.5 under mac osx lion and on another computer with osx snow leopard, both have the same problem, but the same patch on a third computer with windows xp is working well.
>>> I have tested as well two midi->usb interface (a basic one and a motu micro lite) with the same behavior.
>>> So it seems to me that the problem looks like Pd midi driver on osx.
>>> I have tested to modify the audio latency, to change the MIDI latency, but that gives me no better result.
>>> Do you have an idea of where i can look, or a workaround i can find?
>>> Best,
