Re: Crash in Apple code, not mine - what can I do?


Jon Gotow
 

What's the actual cause of the crash? A segmentation fault (SIGSEGV) or some other memory error could be caused by you corrupting memory, handing NSDocumentController a bad object somehow, or some other application error. My experience with crashes in AppKit is that it's usually something I've done prior to the crash that has scrambled memory or corrupted an object. Is the problem reproducible so you can chase down possibilities?

A customer sent a crashlog that clearly shows Apple's code is what's crashing on 10.14.6. There's no way I can reproduce it. So what can I do? Just submit a bug to Apple with the crashlog (although it's 10.14.6, so I doubt they care)?
