On Mac, a huge dialog appears with the crash log in it. I select all, 
copy, paste into a text document and save it. On Windows I don't know, 
but if there's a system log (like Console displays on Mac) it's probably 
in there.

Good question. I've uploaded maybe 20-25 of them so far. I don't always 
bother any more.

I was wrong. Not more than a few minutes ago I crashed after stopping at 
multiple breakpoints. It doesn't seem to matter if they're red-dot or 
typed. However, it seems to take more repetitions before the crash if 
you don't do any stepping.

I see that all the time. If you step over, the dot location fixes itself 
at least here. Until the crash, anyway. It doesn't crash right away, it 
seems to be a cumulative thing, so you get a few chances before 
everything goes down.

This has really been crippling my productivity. I'm sure it's a very 
elusive thing to track down but I hope they can find it. If no one else 
has a problem, it may be something script-related that both you and I 
are doing.
