Please upload a save at a point where this is happening:

I've played SDL(small) for about an hour and this isn't happening to me.

Is this a fresh fort under 0.31.12 or an imported one?

Is it possible your shift key is flaky?

I am not sure, I've had this problem with the 40d# versions too so maybe I am missing a DLL

Fixed it... apparently my old firewall was blocking a DLL I needed.

Firewall blocking a DLL? Uh, okay, glad it's working now!
