    Since upgrading to Mavericks (clean install). I've tried both 10.9 and 10.9.1 - I've experienced system crashes every time I drag / drop items to a program icon on the dock. My system basically crashes to the login screen. Can anyone else confirm this bug, or do I have a hardware problem?

    Are all your applications up ot date for Mavericks, especially the one you're dragging files to?

    Yes, it happens when I drag fonts to font explorer pro, photos to creative cloud apps, scroll up in the new twitter app, etc. I've tried a clean install several times.

    Here's one I just got during a game. I'm sure it's related.

    Nope I mean like directly after rebooting from a crash.

    What you're experiencing isn't normal so it probably is malfunctioning hardware.

    That's what I was afraid of. What steps would you recommend? Take it to the Apple store? I need my laptop every day for work, so I was concerned that it might take a long time to fix...

    Honestly it's hard to say.

    First off I'd try just reverting to whatever OS you were using before Mavericks. Unless for some reason you need to be running Mavericks if you can run an older OS without crashes then there isn't really reason not to.

    If Crashing starts happening after reverting to an older OS or you just need to be running Mavericks for some reason I would definitely recommend taking in the laptop in if you can't diagnose the problem yourself.

    Since there are a lot of things that can go wrong it's hard to say how long fixing it would take. For example if it was just bad ram or something you could swap in some new ram in a few minutes (assuming it not one of the laptops with soldered ram).

    It's also entirely possible that it's not a hardware issue and just some app you have installed or preference causing problems but that's unlikely if it's happening after a fresh install.

    Indeed I did try a clean install of ML and the problem persisted. It's also a rMBP, so does have the soldered ram. I'll just have to deal with the wait, I suppose.

    Thanks so much for your expertise, w0lf.
