Yeah, it's odd. And I wonder if it's made my OS more prone to crashing--just had my Mac reboot without warning while I was surfing on Chrome.

same problem here. Tried to upgrade to 10.8.2, and then iPhoto 9.4. iPhoto crash the system and makes it reboot. I even reinstall fresh 10.8.2 from the recovery disk and still same result. Funny thing, I thought well maybe it is a nice excuse to finally buy Aperture that I want to buy since a long time. Even that crash the system the same way.
When at least I have time machine so I could bring back 9.3.
Hopefully this will be resolved soon.

Ugh. And now my MS Office update is crashing in the same way. This *****.

Finally I was able to get everything: the iPhoto update to 9.4 and my purchase of Aperture. I could only do it by enabling the root account and loging in as root. From there, I could access the AppStore and properly install them. No bumps.
Then I went back to my regular account (which is admin) and tried to update Microsoft Office. Same fatal crash making the OS reboot. Again. I went to the root account and could update MS Office 2011.
From the root account, I did a few maintenance with Onyx
Have not tried to install/update any other software since... Still a bit afraid it would crash again.

Good luck. I'm taking mine in to the Apple Store and can let you know how it goes.

Hello, so here is the final result. The install from root and cleanup/repair with Onyx solved all problems. I can now install all apps normally from my regular admin account.

Ok I"m glad its not just my mac.
I am having the same problems, mine too was with XCODE. After upgrading to 10.8.2 I managed to do the iPhoto 9.4 update. XCODE being a larger program took a lot longer to download and install and thats when the crash would happen. I uninstalled XCODE since I dont use it anyways anymore. So far no reboots.
What the heck is really going on here?
My system is a 1 day old MBP 15" retina, 512 SSD HD and 16GB RAM for reference.

OK. It seems I cannot install any app using the apple installer, without using the root account. Not sure what is the solution. At least there is the workaround of the root account. Hopefully Apple will fix this soon.

I have the same issue while trying to install Xcode, tryed with the root account but it didn't work for me, I got the same error. Does anybody know other work arounds?

Finally I only had a partial fix with the root account. I solve the problem completely by activating the debug menu of the App Store, and then clearing cache and resetting the app.
To activate do this in the terminal.
defaults write com.apple.appstore ShowDebugMenu -bool true
to deactivate, just chance the last part "true" to "false"
This seems to have fully revolve my issues.
