Lissa,

Brilliant.

The we think we've got it.  The problem is rather embarrasing -- and quite
general, insofar as we can tell.  The program could in fact lockup at just
about any time.  Faster typing presumably just brings it about faster.

It will be fixed for beta 4.  Best for now to be very careful not to depend
on DBT 10.6 beta 3 for time-critical work.  And save frequently while you're
using it.

Woops! All this time I should have said lockup, not crash. Thanks.
