The error is a runtime.

The one definite example was importing a shapefile, but the place it  
crashed was in the cleaning.  Did you try v.in.ogr?  Or maybe a  
v.clean (break tool)?  Do you still have the 64bit build to try that?

My builds are 32bit, because of this problem, so you won't see it then.

IT is indeed a mystery why OSX 64bit has this problem.  Though I  
didn't try it on PPC 64bit (no access PPC Macs with Leopard).
