Photoshop CS6: crashes in Nik plugins and locking up

Since the upgrade to CS6 it has been extremely unstable. Crashes 5-10 a day on my Macbook Pro (the beta version and earlier release simply never crashed). The crashes appear to be random. They do happen fairly consistently on launching NikSoftware's ColorFX but also happen at various unrelated moments.
Beyond that, the program also locks very often in a strange way: I can move between files and tools, but the tools don't seem to work. I can't change brush sizes or effect any change on the images...

Nik does have a number of bugs to fix in their plugins.
And their automation plugins can cause some additional issues.

Thanks Chris.
The problems though don't seem to be limited to Nik plugins. The crashes happen on a regular basis without me using Nik. None of these problems happened during the beta though.
