Bug: Lost connection, FM requests credentials for wrong solution

I think this is a new bug in FMPA 15.0.2.


I have a LOCAL SOLUTION open for work, and also my REMOTE TIME TRACKING SOLUTION (open from a remote server).

  1. Walk away with both solutions open, computer goes to sleep.
  2. Wake up computer to continue work.
  3. FileMaker asks for credentials for the LOCAL SOLUTION (not the REMOTE TIME TRACKING SOLUTION).
  4. If I enter those credentials, work continues.
  5. If I click Cancel, LOCAL SOLUTION remains open, but REMOTE TIME TRACKING SOLUTION gets closed.


This is the Re-login window that pops up. CHE_Hockey v.0.88 is the LOCAL SOLUTION.

Clearly, FileMaker is confused about which solution needs credentials entered to reconnect. This bug bypasses the security in place to require reconnection to a remote solution.
