This has only been happening for the last couple weeks, about as long as I've been using OF. Has anyone else had this happen?

OS X 10.5.2 on a Macbook Pro
OmniFocus 1.0.1 (v77.
Yesterday my 10.5.2 MacBook Pro went crazy. It was cycling between applications--I think.

I restarted an sunk into computer hell! The dock and finder began a contest to see which one could crash more frequently. The desktop would never finish loading.

Five calls to Apple--no help. Stumped!!!

Eight hours later I finally resolved it by looking at the crash reports and noting that QuickLook was involved in all of them.

After multiple launches in target disk mode from my old PowerBook G4, using File Buddy for searches and throwing away preference files that had changed yesterday, I finally threw away the right cache (System/Library/ or /Library) and now all is well.

Bottom line: look at the console logs and crash logs and see

Good luck
