i confirm, i experienced crashes as well using the dialog object , and also had the crashes you mention while using Pelado’s p.storage patch.

I spent a while trying to find Roald’s problem of p.storage crashing when using dialog but couldn’t reproduce it, however afer installing maxtoolbox Max did indeed crash when I used the dialog object with both p.storage and the dialog help file.

I suppose this means that it’s not a problem with p.storage. It’s simple to turn maxtoolbox off when its not being used through the extra that’s included with the package. I didn’t get round to trying Emmanuel’s alternative.

I’ve had dodgy experiences with [dialog] ever since OS X, with or
without toolbox. I’d recommend avoiding it and rolling your own.
