Anyone else experiencing this?

iTunes attempts to contact the Genius servers on launch and it crashes. I've tried everything I can think of--trashed prefs, restored library to pre-10.5 via time Machine, deleted genius.itdb and extras.itdb files. Nothing works.

It works fine in another account, so it's something with my library.

Not sure it's your account . . . but then again what do I know.

Here is what happened to me.

I had it crash after inserting a CD, not ripping it, playing track 1 and then interrupting playback by clicking on track 2.

Kaboom. Crashed and offered me a bug report to fill out. Seemed OK on restart.

I am having the same issue - the apple ID account works fine from another computer, so it's not the account itself. Something about this instance of it. Any ideas?
