Filemaker window getting stuck in the foreground


Hi there.  I've been using Filemaker Pro for a few months now.  Recently I put my database onto a server running Filemaker Server and have been accessing it with Filemaker Pro from my computer.  In the last few weeks I've begun having an issue where Filemaker will not drop to the background when I switch to another application.  The top of the window will grey out as if it were in the background, but it still sits on top of all other windows open on my machine.  Concurrently I've noticed that when this happens, drop down menus in my database cease to work as well.  The only solution I've found is restarting the program, but it has begun happening nearly every time I enter a new record.  I am running Mac OS 10.6.7 and FileMaker Pro Advanced 10.0v1.
