Mark,

Anytime the engine unexpectedly quits, a crash log is created.  This 
log needs to be sent in for review with a bug report to bugzilla.  
There is never a time you should not report these crashes.  Holding it 
over and blaming yourself for the crash will not help you nor the 
community as a whole.  At this point, all I care about is that you bug 
report the crash.  If you and anyone else wants to talk about it, no 
prob with me.  Just for the love of Rev, file the report pronto so they 
will take action.

Now....the issue you just mentioned should probably be filed as well.  
Rev should not corrupt itself during any kind of use.  I don't care if 
your two year-old beats on the keyboard, it should never corrupt.
