One in five times Launchbar wont bring up my Application…

This happens regularly enough for me to want to understand why this is occurring and to fix it.

Say I type "MA" into Launchbar. Mostly I get Mail as my No1 hit. I have assigned "MA" as an abbriviation to Mail.app just to be sure.

Yet some of the time Mail will be nowhere at all in a list of directories many screens deep.

This happens on occasions with most regular abbreviations I use and/or have formally declared in LB using Cmd+Opt+'A'. Strange thing is when I retype the letters it sticks to it's guns of not seeing the app I want (and have declared in some cases). It's only when I give up and goto finder hit Command+'A' type a few letters and find the app that LB decides to work as expected again.

Otherwise Launchbar is running flawlessly for me, would love to get to the bottom of this 'feature'.
