Default S3 Soloing causes channel pans to centre bug?

This is strange one.

Iím wanting to solo multiple tracks that are selected in PT. Pressing option+shift on the Mac keyboard, then a solo button on the S3 on one of the selected tracks soloís all the selected tracks as expected. But, and hereís the problem, it also centres the left pan of every stereo channel in the selection. Itís happening intermittently unfortunately. Itís occurring quite a lot though and Iíve actually seen the left pan centre in PTís mixer many times.

....And a question for which I should probably RTFM. Is the option for plug-in windows to open automatically when selecting a track JUST a EUCON preference or is there a keyboard command in PT that turns this on and off? I ask because I keep selecting solos in PT along with shift or command or option+shift (not sure which yet) and suddenly a plug-in window starts opening whenever I select a track.

Shooting from the hip:
Problem 1-Cam't think of a reason for this to happen, so trashing prefs would probably be my best suggestion(this is always worth a try for any odd behavior, and this sounds odd to me)

Problem 2-almost certainly a setting in EUCON

Doesn't the 1st problem sound like hardware? Same problem others have run into with early units randomly centering pans (I think Bob K posted about a similar issue) - if multiiple tracks are selected and shift-opt held down when the problem occurs it would center all selected tracks.

I'm not sure about the first issue but will look out for it. The 2nd one is most likely the settings EuControl that control attentioning and then displaying plugin windows. Take a look at the general tab, turn off the open plugin option and see if thats it.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

Iíve just got to the bottom of the first issue and itís a case of super-embarrassing user error. When I hit option+shift on the Mac keyboard + solo on the S3 Iím occasionally brushing against the rotary encoders on the S3 which is set to left pan. It takes the slightest touch! Duh.

Second issue: What I donít get here is that engaging solos in the PT edit window with keyboard modifiers is enabling plug-in windows automatically opening on track selection in PT.
