The FrameMaker 8 keyboard shortcut issue is particularly frustrating. 
It's not just F9; it's all of the ctrl/F[0-9] shortcuts (element 
operations, conditional text, variables, character and paragraph 
formats). Using these shortcuts can dramatically improve a writer's 
productivity using FrameMaker, and minimize reliance on the mouse.

In FM8, the shortcuts "time out", at an apparently random interval. 
Often the shortcut time-out is almost immediate. These keyboard 
shortcuts are nearly unusable in FM8.

I would also be interested in hearing whether anybody does _not_ 
experience this problem with FrameMaker 8, or if there is a work-around.
