I have tracked down the problem now, which appears to be something about 
Rev's older-version prefs stack. Deleting the prefs fixes the crash. 
However, now I am getting a crash on shutdown, which appears to have 
something to do with a plugin I'm using. The same plugin stack works 
fine in all other versions of Rev.

The tech support queue has also just received 2 more reports of crashing 
on launch, so it is in the hands of the engineers now. At least it isn't 
just me, and it isn't Parallels either.
