One idea would be to set the Debugger > Diagnostics > Debug Internals 
Log File preference and see if that output there helps explain why it 
crashes.  You can send this to support at wingware.com for us to help 
interpret it.

Or, if possible, connect a C/C++ debugger to the debug process before 
causing to crash (e.g gdb w/ 'attach <pid>') then cause the crash and 
see if you can use 'bt' to get a backtrace to send to us.

Another idea would be to turn off Django and Matplotlib support in 
Project Properties under the Extensions tab in case that is causing the 
crash somehow.

Let's see if that turns up anything and we can go from there.
