Hehe...the fun part about this tip is that I encountered the very same problem just two hours ago. Went looking for some help on the web, but couldn't find any (at least I stumbled accross this thread and made a mental note [or should I say mental node?] to come back here later, in case I managed to solve the problem).
After this I just tracked down the script with the aid of the Attribute Editor (remember 'Echo All History' is your best friend), looked for the appropriate values and changed them accordingly.
Never forget: (put on a solemn tone) a great deal of Maya's functionality is scripted in MEL, so there's almost always a way to get around any shortcomings. Amen.
Subdivide and conquer!
Free your mind, and your ass will follow!
