Disappearing edit commands

Losing command-key menu equivalents has been occurring sporadically in 
Rev the entire time I've used it. At least some of the time what I've 
discovered is that Rev has put up an error dialog which is not the 
topmost window and is blocking all such actions. But in that case, 
generally it isn't only command-key menu stuff that stops. And for some 
reason, even though the error dialog is behaving modally at that point, 
no sound emanates from the system to tell you something is going on.

I've been tempted to Bugzilla this but I haven't yet found a reliable 
way of reproducing it, so I haven't. Maybe you're onto something 
repeatable here.
