    I  had this difficulty also with 1.1.1B1 on OSX.  Although I am sure 
(positive as a matter of fact) I did not place an image over the entire 
surface of the card, one was there.  Deleting it fixed the problem.  
Question is, how did the image get there?  Also, clicking on the field 
selected the field and not the image that was over it (I assume it was 
over it).  Clicking on the card selected the image so I could delete it.
