    Since your talking about Snow Leopard, you must be either on ADC Select or Full membership, in which case you should be posting this into mailing lists for Snow Leopard at Apple. They will answer your question.

    Details of how to join these mailing lists will be in XCode and also included with your Snow Leopard seed on ADC.

    Seems to be unhappy about garbage collection (GC). Perhaps the Preference Pane hosting app (System Preferences) is built without garbage collection turned on?
