Product: FileMaker Pro Advanced 17.0.1.143

OS: Mac 10.3.4

Hardware: MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2016) / 16GB RAM

 

Description:

Under Window>ShowWindow I saw a phantom item "() Reconnecting..." which seemed to prevent me from quitting FileMaker.

 

How to replicate:

I had multiples files open from a host over many hours.

During machine sleep, lost connection and upon wake FileMaker attempted to reconnect, but could not for some of the files, so those files closed.

I continued working for a number of hours.

I then closed all my windows.

Under Window>ShowWindow I saw a phantom item "() Reconnecting..." which seemed to prevent me from quitting FileMaker.

After many minutes I had to force quit FileMaker.

I was not able to reproduce it a second time.
