I don't see anything in the bugbase. This sounds severe enough to have hit the engineering circuits had it been known. Can you file a bug with more details about your machine config and any other setup details?
The URL for filing the bug is http://bugs.adobe.com/flex/. Please file under the Flash Builder Projects, Refactoring feature.
Generate Getter/Setter is available when the editor selection is currently on an existing field (e.g. public var myProperty:String) or any valid reference to such a field). There are error cases when it is disabled. A few cases come to mind (1) when you have a duplicate class qualified name with a duplicate property and (2) on MXML properties declared as fx:Declaration or @id.
Can you show an example when it's not enabled?

Please ensure your project includes the framework swc files.
Sometime, it can be due to the compiler settings.
