Mac Command Macros Quitting Game

Lately, I've been having an issue where if I use a Command-bound key or modifier macro, my game will sometimes randomly shut down without giving an error message.
For instance, my Kick ability is keybound to 5, and it has the following macro:

/cast [mod:ctrl,@focus] Kick; Kick

and when I use it, or any other ability bound with command (for instance my potion use is keybound to command+`), then my game just shuts down. Is anyone else having this problem? Does Blizz have some kind of fix for it? It's very difficult to actually push the control button or alt for all my modifiers.

Help, please? Here's my last connection log:

Just because I am a macro freak, use this macro (it's cleaner but does the exact same thing):

#showtooltip
/cast [@focus,mod:ctrl][] Kick

Command + ` is a way to scroll through multiple windows in a given application on a Mac. Suppose you had multiple windows in finder, it would scroll through each one. Maybe, WoW reads that command as a system command rather than a WoW key bind? I am just guessing.

I know this isn't an exact solution to your problem, but it might help:

The Mac options has the setting that overrules system keybinds. So whatever's going on, I feel like it's an error in the game....perhaps I need to reinstall the client? Major suckage though :<

You're probably accidentally hitting Command-Q somehow. This option isn't disabled with the option to disable OS keyboard shortcuts.

The team is aware of this and are reviewing feedback to explore options in addressing this.

This is highly annoying, especially because I have several CTRl (CMD) key macros, and I often strafe while using abilities.

Stumbled upon this:

Follow the steps and instead of "Quit Diablo III" use "Quit World of Warcraft".

Blizz should change the shortcut on a mac though. Q is universally used as strafe, and this has to be a common issue.

This is fixed in the 5.1 PTR and will be out live in 5.1 when the patch is ready.
