    To the collective wisdom:

    I installed Leopard on the release day (now 10.5.1, clean install + migration assistant for apps and accounts).

    Unfortunately, crashes unpredictably when I open pdf files. There are two instances of the problem:

    1. As the file is being loaded, I get a beachball and soon "quits unexpectedly".

    2. As the file is being saved, "quits unexpectedly" and, worse still, it does NOT save my data!

    I cannot notice a pattern, neither can I reproduce the problem at will.

    Emptying caches, repairing permissions and the usual assortment of Onyx maintenance utilities hasn't helped.

    With Acrobat CS3 still incompatible with Leopard, I really do rely on for the bulk of my work.

    Any ideas?

    I know you can't replicate it easily, but create a new user account and see if it ever happens there. That might point to where the problem lies.
