There are definite problems with the printing system in Leopard. I
have multiple pdf files produced with pdflatex that view fine, print
fine through Adobe Reader but crash when attempting to print in
Preview or TeXShop.
Look in /Library/Logs/CrashReporter/ and see if anything is there (not
always the case). There should definitely be a crash report in ~/
Library/Logs/CrashReporter/ if Preview or TeXShop crashes. When
Preview crashes I'd check to send a report to Apple. I'm sure they
know about the problem and I know sample files that crash the system
every time have been sent to them.
