I've been having problems w/ the chat window not existing in Spectator mode. I haven't tested enough to see what causes it to work or not work, but recently & quite often, I'm unable to see the chat window at all (despite flicking "chat" on & off in the HUD options area during spectator mode).

When the chat window doesn't work, nothing shows up. Pressing z & enter do nothing. Sometimes I can see the items that players buy, while other times the chat window seems to not be on the screen at all.

I have no problems during in non-spectator mode. I've never run across this problem on my PC. This problem will exist no matter if I mess with the HUD or not. It will still happen even with default HUD settings.

Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)
CPU: Intel Core i7, 2.3 GHz
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6750M (1 GB) & Intel HD Graphics 3000 (512 MB)

Attached are my r3d logs. Not sure if they're helpful.
