    Indesign CS5 crashing repeatedly.

      I've been using Indesign CS5 for about a year now, migrating from Quark. It's been remarkably stable, running on my iMac OSX10.6.8, 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo w/4 GB SDRAM. Then suddenly today, one particular file starated crashing repeatedly.  I ran Disc Utility off an other start-up drive, repaired permissions; everything checked out OK. Still crashing. I created new docs and dragged thumbnails page by page trying to ID the offending page, but every doc of this lineage crashes. (It would take a long time to rebuild from scratch.) The original doc became unrecoverable. The original crashing file had a couple rows of type on a circular path and I wondered if that was the problem.  I deleted my .plist. Finally, I uninstalled and reinstalled the entire Creative Suite5. Still crashing. Any ideas? I need to be up and running for my work. Many thanks, Dianne,
