I doubt it is bibtex/biber that caused the crash but who knows. If it's something that happens consistently at the same point in the execution of the typeset it would be handy if you could provide minimal but complete document with related files that demonstrates this crash.

Have you tried to run pdflatex, bibtex, pdflatex, pdflatex as separate processes (in the Typeset Menu) to see if it's really the bibtex run that crashes TeXShop.

Good Luck,
