O$: Stability of Studio 6.0 on Mac OSX?

Hi $All,

I'm upgrading one of our clients from Studio 4.x to Studio 6.0, and I'm noticing that Studio 6 is crashing very frequently on me in development mode.  Three times this morning!

I'm developing on a Macbook running Mac OSX 10.8.5.  

Each crash is the same:

Crashed Thread:  19  Dispatch queue: TFSVolumeInfo::GetSyncGCDQueue

Exception Type:  EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGBUS)
Exception Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at 0x00000000fefff000

GCDQueue is "Grand Central Dispatch" -  a technology developed by Apple to optimize application support for systems with multi-core processors and other symmetric multiprocessing systems. It is an implementation of task parallelism based on the thread pool pattern. (To quote wikipedia)

This may or may not be an Omnis issue, but how can I help narrow down the cause of crashing?

By contrast, Studio 5.2.2 has crashed twice in the last two months, both times related to Java.

Is anyone else having stability issues?  I'd like to spend my time actually programming rather than restarting the app every 10 minutes ...
