Do you confirm that by disabling autosave LyX 126.96.36.199 works all
right on MAC OS X 10.6?
No. It seems that even by disabling autosave, LyX still attempts
to perform autosaving and the "crash" still occurs. However, this
is little more than an annoyance since the app doesn't actually
crash and no work is lost.
I understand, but this sounds like an annoyance that I am not ready
to accept. I will delay for a while the upgrade to OS X 10.6. If
this problem is not solved in a few weeks, I am afraid I will have
then to choose between LyX and Snow Leopard. Personally, I have the
impression that many mac os x users will consider this a serious
annoyance. Let's wait and see ...
Can any of the developers find a way of completely disabling
autosave? This would seem to me an acceptable compromise. I am ready
to manually save my own work, but not to be notified at random times
that something is going wrong, even if (almost) everything is going
all right ...
I should also point out that the "crash" only happens when you have
unsaved work for a period of time. If you are constantly saving your
document as you type, then you will rarely experience this annoyance.
