The Cmd-B keyboard shortcut for toggling quick collection sometimes fails. I'm using Lightroom 4.3 on OS X 10.8. I'm not sure if I've seen this problem trying to *enter* quick collection mode, but I have seen it when trying to leave it. It's not always a problem, but I have experienced it several times since 4.3 was released.

same happens on my end. running Win7 x64, and the issue is with Lightroom 4.x and now as well with Lightroom 5.x. Usually happens after doing import jobs.. once I restart Lightroom the keyboard shortcuts works as expected.

The worst bit is that Lightroom is still giving you "Add to Target collection .." announcements, but pictures are not added. If you do not double check against the given collection you can waste some of the time :(
