Get(ActiveModifierKeys) not working when FM 13 Server Admin Console is open

I came across a very strange behavior:

When I have the Filemaker Server Admin Console open in a browser window (and with "open" I mean I am logged in), in my FileMaker client Get(ActiveModifierKeys) does not work anymore. The first picture shows the data viewer while Shift is pressed; instead of "1" I see a "0":

The second picture shows the data viewer after I logged out of the console, I see the correct result, "1":

I use FileMaker 13.0v5 and Mac OS 10.10.3. It doesn't matter if I use Chrome or Safari for the Admin Console. This behavior caused some trouble, as some scripts didn't work correctly anymore.


Using the brandnew FileMaker Server 14 this does not happen :-)


Does anybody have a clue, how the admin console could influence the FileMaker client here?
