Pause/Resume script causes major application freezes in FileMaker 11


FileMaker Pro


FileMaker 11

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.6, Mac OS 10.7 (Windows Vista & 7 not yet tested)

Description of the issue

Whenever a second script runs while the Pause/Resume script step is active and Allow User Abort is set to [Off] it will freeze Filemaker (or any FileMaker Runtime solution). This also occurs when the Pause/Resume script step is being executed multiple times with the pause duration set to 0 seconds.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Create a new script with Allow User Abort [Off] and Pause/Resume Script [Duration (seconds): 10]
2. Create a second script with New Record/Request (or any other major function....)
3. Place a button on the layout that will trigger the second script.
Start the first Pause/Resume script and press the button on the layout to execute the second script while the first script is still in 'pause mode'.

Expected result

The Pause/Resume script should not allow the user to make any changes throughout the duration of the specified time.

Actual result

You can execute any scripts to break the Pause/Resume script. The Pause/Resume script will remain paused indefinitely causing Filemaker or any FileMaker Runtime solution to freeze.
