I built a 0.21-fixes Mac frontend a few days ago (svn rev 17113), and
haven't had any problems with crashing since, so I assume that
something got fixed. My backend is still at 0.21-release, so whatever
it was was most likely a purely frontend issue. I'm still seeing the
other issues that were mentioned though.
