I'm getting frequent crashes from the 0.3.23 Mac OS X build.. when 0.3.21 had no problems.

Installed from the 'bitcoin-0.3.23-macosx.zip' file linked from bitcoin.org and available from Sourceforge:

Code:
$ shasum bitcoin-0.3.23-macosx.zip
42e8a86a97edcafb12d09fa69b56ad0451baa140  bitcoin-0.3.23-macosx.zip

The internal 'about' dialog self-identifies as 'version 0.3.23-beta'.

No user action is associated with the crashes.. I come back to the computer and the app has died with a MacOS crash dialog. Some excerpts from that dialog for the most recent crash:

Code:
Process:         bitcoin [76686]
Path:            /Applications/Bitcoin.app/Contents/MacOS/bitcoin
Identifier:      org.bitcoin.bitcoin

OS Version:      Mac OS X 10.6.7 (10J869)
Report Version:  6

...

Exception Type:  EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)

Memory access crashes in security-sensitive C code make me nervous.

Never tell me the odds. ⓑ 1J5wQvCz2mn3f4TxPFtExKs253GyeKKkBb

yeah, I don't know what's up with the Mac client but it really doesn't work well (especially if you've got FileVault turned on)

it just slows down your computer to a crawl

The Mac client is simply not useable right now.  I haven't been able to send any transactions from it at all.  When I try to send bitcoins the client stops responding but Activity Monitor shows it using 100% CPU.  Sigh.
