No CMD-SPACE in Flash Builder since Snow Leopard

Ok so CMD-SPACE is the default short cut to launch Spotlight. But I wanted that combo for ‘content assist’ with Flex/Flash Builder. Until installing Snow Leopard, that is what I had for a few years, and Spotlight relegated to CTRL-SPACE. However since SnowLeopard, the CMD-SPACE combo is not transmitted to Flash Builder. I assume this is down to Snow Leopard somehow reserving the combination. So begrudgingly I have returned to defaults…

Spotlight : CMD-SPACE
Flash Builder content assist : CTRL-SPACE

    Have you logged a bug for this?

    @ Tink: I haven’t logged a bug. – I’m guessing you mean with the Adobe Flex bugbase ? I had assumed it to be an Apple thing rather than Adobe thing and so taken it no further as yet.

    update: Weirdly, while this continues to be a problem with my Mac Pro running 10.6.2, on a MacBook Pro running 10.6.2, it is not a problem, I can use CMD-SPACE within Flash Builder. Weird and annoying differences.
