Shift Key Contrain Broken in Illustrator

If you suddenly find the Shift key no longer constrains to porportions in Adobe Illustrator, and holding down the space bar no longer allows you to pan around your artwork, here’s the weirdest fix you will ever find for this Illustrator problem. For info, I have had this on CS5 since a clean install on OSX Snow Leaopard.

Install Tweetdeck… Open Tweetdeck… then go back to Illustrator – and hey presto! No longer do i have to log out and back in again to get round this REALLY annoying bug.
