Strange behavior after lost connection to server 13.0.1


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

MacOS X 10.9.1

Description of the issue

after a lost connection to the server, FM13 Advanced reported that fact, BUT left all windows open and reacted strange. Had to Force Quit after e.g. looking into Safety with some private data exposed there, could open script editor, run scripts that were not really executed, click in a window in a record in a field and get a strange message like "The File '?' is needed to (...) but cannot be found".

Steps to reproduce the problem

difficult to say; let an open connection alone for a while does not help
The server by the way reported the lost connection to the client in the console as an issue.

Expected result

Send a note on lost connection and either stick to the traditional "close all windows" with cleaning of local cache, or give a chance to take notes (as in FMWebdirect) and then close alas windows and clean the cache.

At least no fussing with script, security and so forth.

Actual result

see description

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

"The File "?" could not be found and is required to complete this operation"

Configuration information

(I do have a second screenshot with the Security settings open, included in the first error msg. file)
