So the CM samples *did* run successfully, I take it (please correct me 
if I'm misunderstanding here).

Yikes, that's nasty. It's more likely that I've done something stupid 
than you! Could you look in your Library/Logs/CrashReporter folder, see 
if there's a xetex.crash.log, and let me know what that shows. There 
may be a number of crash reports there, if you've been trying 
repeatedly; just one example report (assuming they're all roughly the 
same) would be great.
