They probably also have to upgrade - while there may or may not be actual compatibility problems from one version to the next, I think QGIS will refuse to open newer version files on older QGIS versions.

>> QGIS 1.6 and 1.7 run 64bit, if available. From your crash report for QGIS 1.7, your Mac is 64bit (only the very first Intel Mini and MacBook models were 32bit)...
