[Mac OS X TeX] TexShop crashing OS X

<x-flowed>I plan to submit this as a bugreport to Apple as well, but thought I 
should run it by the people on this list to see if anyone else have seen 
anything similar.

On numerous occasions I've been clicking the "Previous" button in the 
preview window and have had OS X blow up on me completely. What do I 
mean by that? All three times this has happened since yesterday, I've 
been dumped to a solid blue screen. The first time the OS came right 
back up, including logging me back in and starting up the Finder and 
classic. The second time I had to press the reset button. The third time 
I was immediately dumped to the log-in screen.

I believe that I, in each case, was browsing the preview (.pdf) window 
AFTER I had made some changes to the original TEX document, but WITHOUT 
having run Latex again. While I think I clicked "previous" in each case, 
it is possible that one of them happened after I clicked "next".

So far I've been unable to reproduce, but am working on it. If anyone 
has some input, it would be greatly appreciated to allow me to submit a 
more useful bugreport to Apple (even if this is a TexShop bug, it 
shouldn't be able to crash OS X).
