What was the issue with using option 7? I already figured I'd give option 3 a pass to avoid issues.
If you're still having this issue try verifying your game, I had the same problem among others and they were all fixed by re-verifying.
Yes, the problem with using option 3 is that you can kill quest givers or important NPC and they never respawn. I had to go back 6 hours to a save before killing the quest giver at the oracles place.
I remap option 3 to some key combo that I would never hit. Really there is no need to use option 3 unless you are fighting things that have a skull over their names. Meaning they are so high above you that you will do hardly any damage.
