Summary0002383: Graphviz GUI crashes on startup
DescriptionAfter Graphviz GUI had crashed rendering a graph (possibly due to an error in the graph), it has been crashing on start-up every time. I had the latest stable version (2.34.0), uninstalled it and installed the latest development snapshot (graphviz-2.35.20131016.1412), but the same error keeps happening.

Dot output in command line works without a problem (generated a couple graphs).
Steps To Reproducestarting up Graphviz GUI.
TagsNo tags attached.

When you launch an app on OS X 10.7 Lion and later, it tries to re-open the windows you had open before, which could be a problem if a document you had open caused the app to crash. To prevent re-opening previous documents, hold down Shift as you launch the application, or if you prefer you can disable this feature entirely in System Preferences > General.

Thanks! I had thought that it was crashing when trying to re-open that file, so I had renamed the file to make it stop re-opening, but that didn't change anything. Now I've checked the system preferences as well and the "do not restore documents on re-opening the app" setting has already been enabled.

Holding shift when re-opening the app didn't work as well.
