Since upgrading to 4.3 on my iMac using a trackpad I've found the spot removal tool will stop responding/tracking across the screen. This can happen after a few seconds of application loading or a as long as 30 minutes in. I can only resolve by quitting and re-opening application.

Just to add, I have now found it will stop secondary clicking and tracking on magic trackpad outside of Lightroom while it remains open.

I am having the same issue. It doesn't matter if I close LR4 or not right now...it just won't work.

Hey I have it figured out.....

When you select your spot removal tool look at the size of your brush slider on the right side. Chances are it is set to extremely low or even zero. Increase your brish size and the problem will go away. So simple yet it is the fix!

Cheers!!!
