Lightroom sometimes switches to AutoSync inadvertently

I don't know if its operator error, or not, but its happened enough times now (since Lr3.4RC) that I think it may be a bug.

I mean, I know I turned it off, and Lightroom did not crash, yet I found it on - I really don't think I issued the Ctrl-Alt-Shift-A keystroke combo.

Anybody else?

PS - If there was a clearer multi-target edit indication, I would have caught this right away.

I finally figured this one out (inspired by a comment Victoria Bampton made in the thread about grid / filmstrip differences):

I never realized that auto-sync mode in Library module is independent of auto-sync mode in Develop module. So, I was turning it off in one place, but it was not being turned off in the other place. (I had never intentially turned auto-sync on for the purposes of the Library module, since grid mode is how I apply library mode changes to multiple photos).

Another mystery solved!

PS - I'm reminded again of how much I'd prefer a simplified / unified targeting scheme.
