I created a pdf file using tex+gs6+ps2pdf, which causes the OS to crash. 
Attempting to open the pdf in either TeXShop or Preview causes an immediate 
logout, and the machine hangs when i try to log back in. The only way to 
get back in that I can find is to restart the machine after the logout 

On the other hand, opening the file in Acrobat seems to cause no problems.

I had the strange experience of trying to attach the file to an email 
message causing the same kind of crash as well.

Is this one of the Quartz bugs that has been making the rounds on this 
list? To whom at Apple is one supposed to report this kind of thing? The 
file can be found at http://www.math.ubc.ca/~vatsal/files/test.pdf
