If any of the files listed in Modeler's "Recent Files" menu has a name which exceeds a certain length, the menu will not come up and the parent menu will close unexpectedly. The maximum filename length before this bug manifests itself is a function of the screen resolution at the time Modeler was started.

To get around the bug you must either run Modeler at a higher screen resolution or remove the offending "RecentFile" entries from lwm3.cfg.

I've attached a zip file which demonstrates the problem when Lightwave is run at 800x600 resolution. You should extract the zip file's contents to C:\LightWave\Objects, set your resolution to 800x600, run modeler, and open the object file. Once you've done this any attempt to open the "recent files" menu should cause the file menu to close unexpectedly.
