FMPA 13.0v5 + Lion + draw popover = hang?

I decided to investigate popovers to see if their use would make sense in my projects, so I tried to draw one in a layout. Nothing appeared as a drew it, but the dialog box did appear with the title to edit. Once I dismissed that, the layout would not close, and I never did see the popover button or popover window. The File menu was even greyed out so I could not quit FileMaker. So, I killed the process. Once I opened the database again, the popover button was visible and worked. I could then add controls to the window, etc. Subsequent attempts sometimes crashed FMPA instead of merely making it hang.

 

Killing the program every time I want to add a popover seems counterproductive. Has anyone else seen this?

 

Thanks in anticipation,
