FMP 5.5 Crashed on Switch to Layout, But Only on One Computer

Post

Setup: Mac OS X 10.6.2, FMP 5.5, Opening database from FMP Server 5.5

 

Switching to a different layout in a particular database casues FMP5 to crash. This only happens on one computer, and one OS X account on that computer. All other users don't have this problem.

 

I tried the following:

 

  - Clearing Font caches

  - clearing all caches

  - Tossing FMP5 prefs

  - Tossing all prefs

  - Completely cleaning out the library folder on the affected account

  - repairing permissions with Disk utility

  - Verifying correct ownership and permissions for all files on that account

  

 

I'm about to the point where I'm just going to create a new OS X account for this user, migrate their files to that new account, and see what happens.  Any other suggestions on what I might try? Thanks!
