This may not be helpful, but I cannot seem to reproduce your error with 2012b, Mac OS 10.8.2.

Personally, I have found the new GUI without X11 to be a very nice change for Mac....being forced to work with Windows at work. This version seems to be the most "fungible" to date.

Not saying perfect, I just thought a little positive feedback was needed.
