      Trying to save script results in proliferation of dialogs

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      FMP11A (working with file hosted on FMS10)

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.6.5

      Description of the issue

      FileMaker presents a dialog which asks to save changes to an open script with unsaved changes. Normally, clicking any button in this dialog results in the dialog being dismissed (and, if requested, the changes to the script are saved).

      Instead, when I clicked any button in the dialog all I got was in a new copy of the same dialog being displayed. This took a moment to diagnose, because the duplicate dialogs were being drawn at exactly the same location on screen.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Uncertain what exact steps led to this. I was editing a script and had clicked on another open FileMaker window and tried to the run the script when the initial dialog appeared (as expected).

      Expected result

      Only one Save Script dialog should be displayed; clicking a button in a Save Script dialog should not result in another dialog being drawn.

      Actual result

      FileMaker opened repeated copies of the same dialog every time a clicked a button.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      All copies of dialog stated "You have 1 script(s) open with unsaved changes. Do you want to save these changes before performing this operation?" with buttons Don't Save, Cancel, Save All.

      Configuration information

      Server: xServe G5, OS X Server 10.4, FMS10
      Client: MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo, OS X 10.6.5, FMP11A

      Workaround

      I could do nothing to dismiss the dialogs as every click merely opened another dialog. Had to Force Quit from FileMaker Pro.
