The best place to look right now is http://emacsbugs.donarmstrong.com  
and search for bugs in general or in package "ns" (which is Nextstep  
== Cocoa).

Emacs 23.1 Nextstep (Cocoa) is not stable and reliable yet; this is  
documented in etc/NEWS.  It really needs work.  E.g., it crashes in  
its event loop quite often for me, but it's not reproducible.

The best way to help with the development is to figure out why (in the  
code!) bugs occur and then describe the solution, either verbally or  
by writing a patch.  Reporting bugs with all information needed to  
reproduce is a minimal first step, but it is not very effective when  
there are not enough people actually dealing with the reports.  So:  
debug and write more code.
