Filemaker 10 Pro Frequently Crashing Mac OS 10.5 and 10.6

Description of the issue

We have a 5 users on Macs and are seeing frequent and disturbing crashes of Filemaker 10. Here's our setup. 4 iMacs running OS 10.5 or 10.61 of these is our FMP Server it runs OS 10.5The other connect via FMP network remotely to this serverWe also use the recommended Actual technologies ODBC Driver 2.9 to access our MySql DB on our webserver regularlyWe use no other ODBC software or databases on any of these machines  Crashes occur in a number of situations. Here are a few we see regularly. 1.For seemingly no reason, just editing a field in FMP it will crash. This is infrequent but does occur.  2. Often, when using the ODBC Driver to access MySQL it crashes. This is the most repeatable, this fails about 50% of the time and has corrupted our files, lost data, etc.  3. Every night the connection from the 'non-server' machines to the FMP server is lost. I suspect this is a sleep/backup/time machine issue, but have not pinned it down yet.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. We like the product and have used it for 6 years but we may have to find another solution as it's just too unstable at this time. HELP!! Paul HeumillerOwner, Dream   We use Actual Technologies ODBC Driver 2.9 as recommended to connect to a MySql DB on our web server.
