FM asks on startup to install a font


FileMaker Pro


6  and 10

Operating system version

Mac OSX 10.4.6

Description of the issue

When I start up files which I use already for years WITHOUT any alert I get all of a sudden a message that a certain font is not installed. Sometimes it is a common font like Palatino  sometimes it is a Chinese font - I certainly have never used so far. It appears that FM searches on startup all drives for ADDITIONAL font ... flipps a coin and shows an alert.
Since version 6  and  10 have not been changed I suspect something with snow leopard. Is there any chance to tell FM to ignore fonts  or fonts on drives which are  not "drive a   or drive b" ?

Steps to reproduce the problem

no pattern only that it shows shortly after FM-start

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

FileMaker moechte Schrift "Palatino" auf dem Volume "Test-System" verwenden.
Diese Schrift ist nicht installiert. Soll FileMaker erlaubt werden, diese Schrift zu verwenden?

... Nicht erneut nach FileMaker fragen

Im Finder anzeigen     Nicht erlauben    Erlauben

Configuration information

MacBook an Startup and Test-System as Drive where I move downloads to in 0rder to test them first. Both have the same OSX 10.4.6 installation
