Hi David,
	There's a problem in the Mac Aqua/Cocoa (not X11) daily builds where  
if the last directory you used (and where the file browser tries to  
start you out) was at least 10 levels deep then Python's stack limit  
gets exceeded.  I committed some code today to make this problem less  
likely by doubling the stack limit on Aqua and Cocoa.  If this is  
indeed the problem you're experiencing then you have three options:

1) Download tomorrow's build
2) In the 'General' preferences category (Favorites->Preferences)  
	2a) Change 'Use short open/save browser' to "true", or
	2b) Change 'Open dialog starts in directory from last session' to  

	Let me know if these don't help with your crash.
