Yes, this seems to happen to me sometimes too. I just tried Cmd+N to
create a new file and it wasn't working; but it worked by selecting
the "New" menu item. It seems to maybe have something to do with
switching desktop "spaces" - because after doing that, the Cmd+N
shortcut doesn't work, reliably.
