Everytime I'm using the pen tool lately it will all of the sudden switch to the Path Selection tool and everything freezes, I can no longer use any tools or work on my document... does anyone have any insight as to why this is happening and how it can be fixed?

I'm having a similar problem.  I'm using the pen tool (sometimes other tools) and suddenly the pen tool cursor disappears and turns to the path tool. No tools work but I can click through menus add layers etc.  The only thing that works is a complete shutdown and restart.
