This is a bug in Leopard. I was hoping it would be fixed in the
omnibus 10.5.2 update but it wasn't. Apple does know about this but it
won't hurt to `kick the tires' again.
A temporary work around is to print the files that crash Preview
(actually a lower level print facility which then crashes Preview,
TeXShop, etc.) using Adobe Reader. I choke every time I have to say
