Get(ActiveModifierKeys) always returns 0 on one certain machine

Post

MacBook Pro 2.4GHz/4GbRAM, OS 10.6.3.  Repeatable on this machine in FileMaker Pro v10 and v11, with built-in and external keyboards.  Modifier keys do work correctly in all behavior except Get(ActiveModifierKeys) eg. delete multiple records with option key down DOES suppress dialog. 

 

Have deleted prefs, reinstalled FM, reinstalled OS.  Test script below displays correct value on every machine except this MacBook Pro. 

Show Custom Dialog ["mod key value: " & Get(ActiveModifierKeys)]

 

I bought this machine for a client to run my database and am climbing the wall trying to get this to work.  Suggestions please.
