When you have the vector tool (white arrow) selected and the paths of some vector shape are shown on the canvas and you then zoom in via keyboard (ctrl and +) the application crashes as soons as the pixel-grid starts to show (at 600%). I was able to reproduce this bug several times.

yup, moving a vector point at or near max zoom bombs photoshop 100% of the time for me.

I have pixel grid turned off

Also, dragging the canvas at max zoom also seems to bomb stuff out.

Howdy Caroline and Michael,

I've tried this on Win7.1 and cannot reproduce the problem.  I have Grid Lines on.  I create a rectangle, select it with the Direct Selection Tool (white arrow), and zoomed in via CNTRL+ + all the way to 3200%.  I then zoomed in and out with no trouble.  What kind of video card are you running?  What do you see under Graphics Processor Setting (top-right) under Edit > Preferences > Performance?

Thanks,
David

Is Use Graphics Processor enabled?  If you click Advanced Settings, what is the Drawing mode?  Which check boxes are checked?

Thanks,
David
