At the very least have a broken haxxie installed. I would strongly suggest removing ~/Library/InputManagers (or at least move it aside) since those haxxies get loaded into every application and major cause of crashes (see also Mac FAQ 12.4). Removing that problem may either solve the issue or unmask some other problem. In the latter case, please scan through the Mac FAQ to find a solution, otherwise post here with details.
