Allen,
I just discovered that you're exactly right. It's lines out of bounds
causing the problem. I also just found a workaround. In graph options, if I
have the option to "create editable graphics" turned on, then I don't get
the crash. If it's turned off, then I get the crash. Boy, I can't wait
until they fix this one!
