Finder and apps on my powerbook have a regular and annoying habit of crashing. It seems to be related to anything that has to rename or write a new file - Dreamweaver always crashes on file saves and renames, Finder crashes on renames occassionally, other programs seem do it randomly, but it seems as if its related to this. The crash log always looks substantially similar to the following...

HIToolbox is called, then two to four lines later the thread goes down. Does anyone have any ideas how i can narrow this problem down and fix it?

thanks
