More information but no solution.

I built QGIS 0.8 and 0.9 on a clean system to be sure there are no extra 
files beyond the needed dependencies. The problem exists only in 0.8.

I discovered that when I run QGIS inside GRASS, I can load a shp file 
without crashing. I then removed libgrassplugin.so and 
libgrassprovider.so from qgis0.8.1.app/Contents/MacOS/lib/qgis/ and 
found that I can open a shp file when running QGIS directly without GRASS.

The problem therefore seems to be related to how frameworks are linked 
with the GRASS addons in 0.8. When the frameworks get linked to 0.8, 
they seem to be requiring the presence of GRASS.
