Rev 2.5 Hang at Launch on OS X Bugzilla'd

I've about had it with this bug, which I was sure I'd reported and BZed 
before, but apparently not.

If you can confirm that this bug arises, please go add to my 

Essentially, trying to launch Rev (this has been true for 2.2 and is 
still true in 2.5 though less frequent), the splash screen comes up, 
gets to the point where it says in the lower right corner that it's 
loading menus and plugins, and then hangs. Until today, I didn't find 
anything short of a reinstall that helped. I think I discovered today 
that replacing the revpreferences.rev stack in the components/save 
folder solves the problem. But then you have to resupply your serial 
number and reset all your preferences.

This happens for me more than once or twice a month and I just can't 
find a pattern. I can work in Rev for hours, close it, go to lunch, 
come back, launch it and have it fail. No warning, nothing.

Am I the only one experiencing this?
