New FM 12 Pro Advance crashes when typing the name "admin" --Manage/Security

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12 Advance

Operating system version

Mac OS Lion 10.7.3

Description of the issue

When converting my databases to FM 12, I noticed that for some, I used my name and others I used admin as the name (my password was the same for all of them).  So to make them all the same with "admin", I went to Manage / Security . . . as soon as I started typing admin (I would only get "ad" typed, FM would crash.  This happened 10-12 times as I attempted to alter the name.  I finally copied the word "admin" to the clipboard and just pasted it into that box . . . which worked.  It also crashed on a couple of other occasions when trying to type different usernames / passwords into the sign in box.
