Sparkle framework crash

There have been some crashing recently in the Sparkle framework which I use for updates when choosing the “Check for Update” item in the TaskCard menu. It doesn’t occur every time with 100% predicability but it’s pretty annoying and could be happening at other checking intervals at startup for some users (possible, but I haven’t had reports). I’m filing a bug report with the developer and hopefully it will be fixed soon.

If you ever get a crash please review the crash report (the window that will pop up stating there was a crash) and check for the lines below which will indicate the crash is related to the Sparkle framework.
