      Summary

      FM Advanced Pro 11.0v2 Mac crashes during data editing in table layouts

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11.0v2(06-11-2010)

      Operating system version

      10.5.8

      Description of the issue

      In Browse mode displaying a table layout, clicking in a data cell to edit existing data sometimes causes a crash.  The problem seems to occur when the field is highlighted and then the mouse moves.

      Having crashed, the entire system freezes except that moving the mouse to the left or right causes the left or right sides of the data cell to highlight.  All other mouse activity is disabled.  The only solution is a forced shutdown of the system [Cmnd-Cntrl-Power Key] and restart.  On restart everything is back to normal.

      There are no other known bugs in my system and all other applications run perfectly.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      See description above.  I haven't yet perceived a definite pattern.

      Expected result

      Any user should be able to move a mouse while a field is highlighted without crashing the application.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      No error messages appear - the system just crashes

      Configuration information

      MacBook Pro 4,1 Intel Core Duo 2.5GHz
      Logitech MX620 Laser Cordless Mouse

      Workaround

      Extreme care not to move the mouse if a field is highlighted !  Which is an unacceptable restriction on normal working
