Intermittent application-wide modifier key failure


11.0 v4

Operating system version

OS X 10.7.1

Description of the issue

We are experiencing an intermittent problem where modifier keys are not recognized by FileMaker.  It not only affects script behavior when calling Get ( ActiveModifierKeys ) but also affects dragging objects in layout mode as well as in the relationship graph.  In those cases, shift-click does not constrain and option-click does not copy the object.

It's been very intermittent in 10.6 but we're noticing it's more frequent in 10.7 Lion.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Haven't determined a pattern yet.  We are in developer layouts and screens all day long and it occurs at least 3 times a week.  Restarting FileMaker does not fix it.
