probably the most common crash with tiger...
crawling reveals that this may have to do with a corrupt font.
i have an ibook g4/powerpc and (nearly) the same crashes once in a
while, with different applications (Apple as well as non-Apple apps
or during compilation but never TeXShop).
however, it is potentially helpful, if you give more information
about what you did prior to the crash.
i think that this does NOT have something to do with fonts because i
had these crashes before transferring older fonts or installing new
ones - i only had the standard fonts.
or Apple really has a problem:
i've seen these crashes with tiger way too often - from 10.4.3 thru
10.4.8, with two different RAM-modules.
let me tell you the story:
a week after finishing my thesis (ethnomusicology) with TeXShop i had
a few kernel panics and i made a clean-sweep-system-reinstallation to
build everything up from scratch.
until the kernel panics occurred again so i thought: well, one more
reinstallation. during that 2nd reinstallation i had another kernel
panic (!) but still needed to backup some new documents so after
finishing that i brought it to gravis (apple service and retail in
germany). i had no guarantee and they needed two weeks to find
NOTHING, so they replaced a RAM-module and installed 10.4.6 but said:
no charge (!!!).
my guess is that they got a directive from Apple to do this in
general - in order not to loose customers...
so, in the end, i still have these crashes, as lots of other people,
even on "new world machines" as i see now. i think the managers are
giving HELL to the technicians...
best wishes and cross your fingers that they find the problem...
i see you have lots of crashes. you can try to verify your fonts with
Font Book.app, maybe you have a corrupt font. i did it on my machine
and there was not a single warning, Schriftsammlung (localized name)
told me it is safe to use all the fonts...
