After creating a backup profile when you try and start the back up using the start backup button it crashes it starts to write the file but only creates the file no data is actually written to the file it is repeatable everytime

How to repeat:
Click on Backup then create a backup profile after creating the backup profile with the selected databases hit start backup and it crashes everytime

and then Segmentation fault

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem.  Unfortunately
you are not using a current version of the product your reported a
problem with -- the problem might already be fixed. Please download
a new version from http://www.mysql.com/downloads/

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest versions,
please change the version on this bug report to the version you
tested and change the status back to "Open".  Again, thank you for
your continued support of MySQL.

Was working for me until I upgraded to 5.015 (or whatever today's first release was) from the 5.0 release candidate. Admin crashed with no password. I assumed that was the problem so I did a mysql_secure_installation and assigned a password.

It still crashes.

I have deleted the app and all preference files. Does not help.

The error I get is:

KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE (0x0002) at 0x00000000

Thread 0 Crashed:

1    sscanf + 88

I also have a crsh log that I can send someone.
I am using Mac OS 10.4.2 and installed todays release of MySql (which is working fine).

Wrong bug report. I'll repost in correct one.
