Same thing has happened to me and I spent some (too long) time finding  
out that it seems to be some particular fonts only that leads to a  
crash. For me, a file crashes when including the BlueSky font  
SFSX1000: Computer Modern Sans Serif Bold Extended

A source generating the crashing pdf file is



  \sffamily\bfseries Crash

No crash when uncommenting \usepackage{lmodern}, which chooses LMSans  
10-Bold instead for SFSX1000.

I have had some problems with some monospaced font also, it might have  
been cmtt.

People on this list have indicated problems with how Leopard handles
