Hi Jacqueline, I wasn't looking to turn this thread around into
looking at the specific problems I had with Rev 2.9-3.0 in June to
October 2008.  I tried all manner of logging, and even sent multiple
crash logs to  None of the information that I could get
could lead to any indication of the causes of the crashes.  In the end
I gave up on using Rev on Windows and Linux and just use it on OS X.

I think that in order to solve difficult unreproduceable problems like
Camm29 is referring to, we need to have debug logging built into the
engine.  In the cases I was suffering from, even having debugging
built into the the runtime would not help, as Rev was crashing
(apparently) randomly.
