Description of the issue

FileMaker Crashes when deleting a tab from a tab control

Steps to reproduce the problem

Particularly when duplicating a layout with a tab control that already exists on the layout. Delete a single tab with objects on it then save the layout. FM will crash on save.

Expected result

Not to crash

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None

Configuration information

This has been found on FMP 12 v1 and v2. Will be upgrading to v3. Also tested on OS X 10.7 and 10.8. Crash occurs on both.

Workaround

Wait for the correct alignment of the sun, moon and starts, bow 3x to the east then try again.
This also occasionally plagued FMP 11 although it was possible to work around by selecting the tab control, then scrolling so that it no longer appeared in the window, then selecting edit tab control from the menu and deleting it. This does not work in FMP 12.
