Having problems with 5.3 in a number of functions relating to Catalogs. Whether I am trying to create new Catalogs or opening another Catalog ... File>Create ... or File>Open ..., the dialog box pops up momentarily then disappears, putting me back to the main window. Another is when I launch Lr5.3 and it asks me to designate a Catalog, I select "Choose a Different Catalog" button from the Select Catalog box and the same happens (box pops up then disappears).

Has anyone else experienced this?

The only way, right now, for me to use my different Catalogs is by launching the Catalog itself from the Finder (I'm on an iMac w/Mavericks OSX) ... any ideas/fixes would be greatly appreciated.

This was fixed by Apple in the Mac OS X 10.9.1 update or later.
