I am finding that this script above is causing regular crashes - not every time, but approximately half of my attempts to use this end in a total hang.

Does it crash or hang? Those are two very different behaviors.

Sorry, I should have been more accurate. I mean a total crash. Just did it to me again, actually. I'm generally exporting 3-4 layers after an auto-align operation.

Windows - XP Pro 64-bit. 4GB of RAM. I don't normally have RAM issues with these kind of ops, and it never did it in CS4, so I'm a bit puzzled. And it's inconsistent too - sometimes I'll get three crashes in a row, and then it'll work fine for a few exports, then it'll crash again - then work again. It's frustrating, as I'm always repeating the same action first but getting different outcomes..

Do you have a crash log? That might help us. Does restoring your prefs help? http://bit.ly/Troubleshoot_PS

I'm unsure how to generate a crash report on Windows, but the Event Viewer produces this:

Faulting application photoshop.exe, version 13.0.1.0, faulting module scriptuiflex.dll, version 6.2.29.18602, fault address 0x0000000000007df5.

Well, at least that tells us that it is crashing in the script UI code.

The crashes are not confined to only to Export layers to files script ScriptUIFles,dll crashes on others as well. The crash offset is consistent 7df5 the crash itself is not you never know when it will crash you just know it will. Restart photo it may recover documents you were working on and running the script again works. I have had ScriptUIFlex.dll also fail after restarting Photoshop here are a few I had lately though I using Photoshop less and less. the 7DF5 offset bug.
Happened on my old laptop Windows XP 32 bit system with 2GB Ram. And on my Windows 7 64Bit system with 9GB Ram. I retired my Laptop and replaced it with a Workstation Dual six core Xeon processors 40GB ECC RAM and SDD ScriptUIFles.dll fails on it also.

Happens for me on two separate computers running two different versions of Photoshop. One cs6 on a laptop (http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabo...) running fully updated Windows 7 and a desktop running cs5 whose specs I'm not 100% on, but has 8 gigs of ram, i7 processor of some sorts, 750G HD and a mid level Nvidia video card.

Usually happens when PS has been open for a while and I attempt to run export layers to files script. Restarting PS and running the script consistently yields successful results.

On the latest CS6 update I'm running (13.01 x64), the error no longer occurs for me, but I'm on a brand-new machine with higher specs and far more RAM too.
