Lightroom: “no photo selected” when opening image in Develop.

Just installed LR4 & upgraded my LR3 catalogue. Thought all was fine until I selected an image in the Library. Hit D to open in Develop. Develop opened ok but states “no photo selected”, and there aren’t any images in film strip.
As a test I imported some fresh files – same issue.
Why won’t files open in the Develop Module. I’ve used both LR2 & LR3 extensively, and not had this issue before.

Restart Lightroom as a workaround to correct this issue.

intermittently I have images selected in the filmstrip or grid and when I go to develop module, I get the message "No Photo Selected" along with a blank screen. Then I immediately go back to grid and my images are still selected. There is no way out of this except to quit and restart LR, many times until by chance it stops happening. I am running OS X 10.6.8 on a Mac Pro
