Mac OS X installs literally tens of thousands of system files (many of them hidden). When they get corrupted, which can happen when you never do a clean install, but only install updates to the operating system, they can cause problems like you experience. There are many, many files beyond the cache files which you have cleaned.
Either create a new user and move your files there.
Alternatively, backup all the users files in your current user. Erase your drive, reinstall the operating system, and copy your user files back to that user.
Ugh. I was hoping not to have to go there!
This machine received a clean install of Lion and then upgraded to Mavericks.
Why would it be system file corruption if the application opens fine in other user accounts? They're all using the same system. And not having issues with other applications.

This is a permissions problem on the prefs folder, as I recall.
I reset all preferences.
I repaired permissions.
If you are referring to something else, please explain.
Thank you, Peter Spier. I moved the whole Adobe InDesign folder to the desktop and it opened!
Google for the BIB line and John Hawkinson and InDesign na you should come up withthe tread where he recognizes this particular crash signature. It's a failure of the installer to grant the proper permissions to the folders where the prefs are written, and my memory is it can be fixed either by deleting the entire folder(s) or changing the permissions.
I don't have time tonight to find the link for you.
