Thanks, but that didn't work.  Still the beach ball, still the crash.  What's more, after the crash my font caches seem to be messed up: they show the same symptoms as came from the infamous "font cache bug".  I patched the binaries affected by the fontcache bug when the patches came out.  LaTeXiT is messing with the cache---is that even possible?
