I have seen this behavior for over 6 months now, and on 2 different systems.
I think I may have narrowed down the cause, and wondering if anyone can confirm/deny, or co-miserate!
RoboHelp 9 (patched, etc.) is duplicating my toolbars
I think this is happening when I have both RH8 (patched) and RH9 (patched) on the same system.
I had 2 separate systems exhibit this behavior...
MacBook Pro (circa 2007) running Bootcamp, Win7 Ultimate 32 bit
MacBook Air (new, and sooo cool!) running vmware Fusion, Win7 Ultimate, 64 bit
It's not a dealbreaker, but on both systems now it's shown itself initially within hours of a major Adobe presentation at a major conference! No harm yet, but sure kicks the blood pressure up a bit wondering if things will keep moving thru the preso!
I've been notorious for running all kinds of versions on the same PC. I can't say that I've ever seen it happen to me. The only difference I see here is that you are on a Mac. But I'm doubtful that would explain it.
