Trying to save script results in proliferation of dialogs
FMP11A (working with file hosted on FMS10)
OS X 10.6.5
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.
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).
Only one Save Script dialog should be displayed; clicking a button in a Save Script dialog should not result in another dialog being drawn.
FileMaker opened repeated copies of the same dialog every time a clicked a button.
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.

I could do nothing to dismiss the dialogs as every click merely opened another dialog. Had to Force Quit from FileMaker Pro.
Is this issue repeatable?
If yes, repeatable only with the same file or with any FileMaker file?
If only one file shows this behavior, the file may be damaged and may thus need to be replaced with a back up file.
