I found that LaTeXiT 2.0 worked fine on my office computer and MacBook
(both running 10.6.1) but crashed as described on my Mac at home
running 10.5.6. I rebooted my home Mac on 10.6.1 and it worked fine. I
had done the Preferences file removal but that did not help things on
the 10.5.6 system. i am wondering if there is an issue on pre-Snow
Leopard systems. I also see some errors thrown up in the Console in
10.5.6 but had not fully investigated yet so I have not emailed Pierre
about it so far.
