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 Brian I have reproduce theses effect or two different Mac using Mac OS 8.6. Idid not have this problem when I was runni Sent via Deja.com http://www.deja.com/ Before you buy.
