SourceTree crashing on launch

v1.5.3 was running fine for a while (weeks?) and I'd had it open a long time (a few days probably). It crashed, then crashed on relaunch after displaying bookmarks window momentarily. Trashing com.torusknot.* prefs and installing 1.5.4 didn't change anything. (SourceTree_2012-09-28-162610_ProFish.crash.txt) I had to delete Application Support/SourceTree To recover.

Or so I thought. After getting back into the working copy and repo I was working on, it crashed again. Any suggestions?

It's working now: Took a fresh look at it this morning. It had been crashing every time I opened the bookmark for my working copy/repo. I hadn't gotten around to installing the OS X 10.7.5 update, so I did that and now SourceTree seems ok. After trashing prefs, and upgrading to 1.5.4 above, I'm on Embedded Git If it keeps working over the weekend I'll come back and close this question.

Looking at the stack trace, this isn't something we've encountered before and it's not clear what happened - if it happens again, please can you also provide any messages from associated with

I found this post as I am also suffering from the same crash on launch. I removed and reinstalled the latest version, and still crashes. I have a crash log from, where could I send it? I am running Mac OS X 10.9.4, SourceTree v Any help is appreciated!

Nevermind. I saw in the crash log "Identifier: com.torusknot.SourceTreeNotMAS", and I realized that somehow I must have installed the version right from the site over top of my original MAS installation. Removed app, reinstalled from MAS, right as rain.
