Delete Portal Row does not work on first use after opening the file


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.8.5

Description of the issue

I have a Portal based on a Join table with allow record creation enabled. It creates the records however if I try to delete a portal row using a bottom with the Delete Portal Row script selected the delete fails until I create another record then it works ok.

Steps to reproduce the problem

I created a new file with only a few tables and no other scripts and the same problem happened.  PhilModJunk was helping me isolate the problem and he created a 3 table DB with a portal to a join table and delete portal row button.  His file exhibited the same behavior.
Again it happens on the first attempt to use the button script. Once I either delete that record or save it and create another record it work fine.  And it continues to work as long as that file is open.  Close the file and log back in and the problem happens again.  Very easy to reproduce the problem.

Expected result

Portal row record should be deleted

Actual result

Portal Row is not deleted

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error message

Configuration information

The problem does not exist if the file is run locally.  It only happens when running from a server. I'm using a hosting company who I believe is running FM 12 Server.
The hosting company reinstalled the server software and the problem still exists.
