I posted this issue over 3 months ago, and have not yet heard anything from you. :-(
In the past I have had very swift responses to the issues. What's up?
This bug is causing a great deal of data-entry errors in our database, as the users do not expect this erroneous behaviour and tend not to be looking carefully at the screen, when they enter their data. We would thus very much like it ti be corrected as soon as possible, and to know that FMI ARE PROGRESSING ON THE CASE.
I have invested a great deal of time in identifying EXACTLY what the cause of the error is and carefully documenting it for you here. It would be honorable of you to respect this and reply within a reasonable timeframe. FM-Developers wish to have the feeling we are working together on this!

Thank you for your post.
I apologize your initial post slipped through the cracks.
I attempted to replicate this behavior in FileMaker Pro 12v2 and was unable. However, I was able to replicate in FileMaker Pro 12v1. The suggestion at this time would be to update to FileMaker Pro 12v2. The updater is located in knowledge base article 11051 found here:
If you're currently running version 2, then I would like to get a copy of your sample file to attempt to replicate in version 2 on my end.
Please let me know if you are experiencing this behavior in FileMaker Pro 12v2, and I will send you the instructions for sending the file.
I realise this is an old post but I was having similar issues recently. For my situation I was trying to select entire contents while arrow-keying through records in a portal. I used the script debugger and it seemed the entire contents were selected right until the script ended (with an End If).
I found that putting in a 'Halt Script' step after 'Set Selection [field name]' and having the field in the layout set to 'Select entire contents on entry' produced the required result.
Hopefully someone else may find this helpful, as I'm assuming you found a solution by now!
-Edit: I should have mentioned, I am using a script called from 'OnObjectKeystroke' in several fields, and determining outcome based on 'Code'
