Photoshop: Switching documents while running an action causes the action to run on the wrong document

When you start an action and switch to the next file with ALT+TAB, the action runs over the new image and not in the original file. So you can ́t start a (i.e. long) action and work on other files...

Btw: After canceling the action there is no way to stop it completely (in Button Mode). Why???

Make sure Photoshop is Up-To-Date: http://adobe.ly/PS-Up-To-Date

On Windows, the version should be

This is a limitation of the action playback design. We won't be able to change this behavior without very significant changes, sorry.
