    Just thought I'd share this with everyone.

    Was getting frustrated with crashing Pages/Numbers/Keynote on launch after installing iWork with latest update, along with Snow Leopard 10.6.5 combo update and disk permissions check.

    To cut a long story short, the issue was due to a corrupt user font. I disabled 'user' fonts using the Font Book utility and that seems to have done the trick.

    Next thing to do would be to isolate the problematic font, but at least I can get on with some work now!

    The most common "problem" fonts for iWork are Hoefler Text & Franklin Gothic. Start by disabling those. Normally, though, the combo updater fixes those.
