We certainly get our share of mysterious things that appear to happen . I wonder if this is connected to the CCL Mountain Lion Memory surge issue. We can create new threads, thousands of them, no problem, but then adding some AppKit calls, e.g., modal dialogs such as file choosers will result in problems. It also does appear that the chance of the surge happening goes up with time. Never crashes the first time.
