ELEMENTS 11/12: Negative Integer message stops my editing process on MacOS 10.9

I am unable to edit my photos without this message coming up when I move any slider to the left of zero - "an integer between -150 and 150 is required. Closest value inserted". The only option to press is "OK" but then the message just keeps repeating and repeating. I have Photoshop Elements 11, so downloaded a trial version of Photoshop Elements 12, and I get the same problem. I am working on a Macbook Pro with Maverick.

Which slider is showing this?
And have you turned off Dictation in the OS preferences (10.9's dictation "feature" causes all sorts of text/number entry problems)?

Thanks for coming back to me so quick. I've turned off Dictation, re-booted, but it's still happening. It occurs under the Expert Panel, when I'm using the contrast, lightness, hue, saturation and vibrance sliders. Whether I use the slider, or whether I type in the physical number, i.e. (-10), the same error message occurs.

OK, hopefully the Elements team has some idea why MacOS 10.9 is causing that...
