I was having this problem with pre9, and after poking around a little, found
that AS was core-dumping every time I started it. I rooted thru my
harddrive, deleted everything I could find even remotely related to AS
configuration, and recompiled/installed. It started this time, but anytime I
tried to change _any_ configuration option ( I mean any look, any feel, even
the background...) it core-dumped and died.

So I figured I'd wait on the beta. Still going to download it tonight and
try it out, but this makes me wonder if I'll be going back to pre6 again.
