Did that. Looks like you were able to confirm it on linux and 10.7, which makes me feel better about reporting it. I'm always unsure if what I find is really a bug, or just me doing something stupid - thus my posting here first :-).

Of course, 5.1 is currently unusable for me, not only because it is still beta, but because menus appear to be having issues - my quit and preferences functions are not properly merged into the application menu, and keyboard shortcuts in the menu are ignored when the cursor is in a text field. But that's a whole different issue.

Thanks for the link. Yeah, I saw that when I went to post  my menu bug, and figured it was probably the same thing.

Thanks for your time and response!
