I'm on a Power PC G4 with Mac OS 10.4.9. Everything worked fine after
I downloaded 2.8.1 (build 470). As recommended, I did a full install.
No problem for about ten days.
Then I happened to download "BigGanesh". I tried to take a look at
the stack and Rev crashed (no cause-effect relationship intended,
just a reconstruction of what happened). Any further attempt to open
Rev failed. I put it into the trash and reinstalled the whole thing.
Restarted the computer. Still only crashes.
Strangely enough, after a few hours rest for the computer, Revolution
happily reappeared. However, a couple of days later it began to crash
again, and since then I have been unable to open 2.8.1. The splash
screen appears, even the tools palette. But whenever either "Loading
Tools" or "Loading Menu Bar" is reached, a frightening pause
interrupts the process, everything Rev related disappears and after a
certain interval I am informed that the application quit unexpectedly.
Earlier Rev versions on the same machine are not affected. Any
suggestion how to regain access to 2.8.1 are most welcome. Thanks in
