I can confirm this, I noticed the effect just this week.

It seems to me the effect (bug) is connected to the current document  
focus. There are situations where you cannot tell from looking at the  
screen which document and/or pod has the focus. Also I read reports  
that the FDK can sometimes not report the active document to plug-ins.  
There are many challenges with the new UI...

Thanks for the workaround idea!
