Hi, I don't know how to interpret the system dump info you provided, but I hope one or both of the following may help:
I had this problem: iTunes worked great before the upgrade to 8.1.1, then, after the upgrade to 8.1.1, failed to start completely. I have ~30,000 song library with the music stored on a USB HDD. Upon installing 8.1.1, iTunes would come up partially (menu items only), then say "loading library" or something similar, then say "checking iTunes library" or something similar, and then hang permanently (I now am fairly sure that it would hang immediately after finishing "checking iTunes library"). Force quit would not get rid of iTunes, and shutting down took FOREVER, as did starting up. After shutdown/startup, trying to start iTunes would repeat the whole process.
iTunes 8.1.1 is now working perfectly for me. I did two things: disconnected the 2nd gen iPod shuffle that was on the USB dock attached to the computer, and disabled logmein from it's menu. Not sure if one or both were the problems (iPod most likely, but logmein was also showing many errors in Console view of system log).
Hope that helps.
When I want a new headache, I will try reconnecting the Shuffle to see what happens...
