Did you try forcing the animated GIFs to play by setting their repeatCounts
to -1? Maybe something like:
set the repeatCount of img mySrcImg to -1

Are you sure the app has crashed? Are you saying the app is completely
non-responsive or stops functioning at a certain point? It is unlikely that
anything like this is caused by animated GIFs (a corrupted image can result
in a jumbled mess of rainbow looking static but this usually does not
inhibit the operation of scripts).
If you can generate the problem in a stack that contains only your buttons,
images and drag scripts, then you should be able to track down the problem
there. Otherwise, something else is going on in your stacks/scripts.
