Re: Mathematica 4.0.1 Front End crashes my Mac

I have a similar problem, but believe it is more fundamental. Here is
what I have found using Mac OS 8.6.

If I open Mathematica 4.0 after booting up the system ( the only
application other than Finder running), I have no problems with
Mathematica. If I now quit Mathematica and open up another application
and then use the menu bar in that application for anything, the system
crashes and I get a "' application name' has unexpectedly quit because
of error type 1 occurred". I can reproduce this crash with Word 98,
IE4.5, Eudora 4.0, BBedit 4.0 to name a few. If instead of using the
menu bar I go to Finder, I get the message "Finder has quit, reboot your
system" or simply the system freezes.

If I do not quit Mathematica, all the other applications including
Finder will work fine and I do not experience any crashes.

Perhaps the Wolfram experts have some suggestions. I did not see any
reports on their site other than the known problems with Appearance
Manager. Perhaps I missed something. HELP


I have reproduce theses effect or two different Mac using Mac OS 8.6.
Idid not have this problem when I was runni
