Hi Judy

Does it crash during development or then you running your app? I have 
read on this list before that if you run Jaguar there is some kind of 
bug with the Appearence Manager, and the solution is to preview with 
Mac OS simulated (or windows or Linux).
This is Sarah's tips (Thanks Sarah!):

This solution works fine for me.
