Posted at request of jflat06:

My Mac client crashed after a day in dev. When I reopened, it did the main update - worked for about a half hour, then crashed (log.txt attached).

When I tried to reopen, it wouldn't. Tried again and it did successfully open. Waiting to see if or how long to crash...

Looks like it crash because of lost connection!
This should never happen!

This happens to me all the time. I use VPN to work from home, and whenever the network state changes while Foldit is running it crashes.

Just one of those wonderful fleeting bugs that has evaporated for now.
