Anybody have any thoughts?
Not with such a total lack of information.
Give us a clue: details about your platform, Macintosh or Windows, exact versions of Photoshop (11.0.1 update applied?), ACR (5.3? 5.4?), the OS, your machine specs, RAM, Photoshop RAM allowance, graphics card and driver, etc.

I am also having this problem. Here is the info of what I'm using:
- OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (Final Release - with all updates installed)
- HP Compaq 6710b
- Processor: Intel Core2Duo 2.1ghz
- Memory: 4GB Ram
- Adobe Photoshop Version: 11.0.1 (11.0.1x20090218 [20090218.r.523 2009/02/18:02:00:00 cutoff; r branch]) X64
- Bridge CS4 188.8.131.524
- Camera RAW 5.4
- Camera - Canon 40D shooting L JPG + RAW
The staighten tool seems to be the cause of my Camera RAW (or Bridge?) crashing. Like the previous poster mentioned, it is sporadic, but once it happens, it seems to stick each time I try. It also doesn't seem to matter how many RAW files are open. I tried going through the first few steps in an Adobe Bridge CS4 troubleshooting article, which included clearing the preference and cache, etc. Also, it was mentioned that I should try without having other programs open. I tried this as well, and it didn't help.
Any new insight into this issue?
Many, many thanks Tom!
I had exactly the same symptoms as Dan reported, but had been ignoring it until today. Found this thread, installed the update (which I thought was just to add support for new cameras), and, like magic, it now works great.
One additional symptom that I had that Dan did not mention: With ACR 5.4, when I used the straighten tool, the dotted line that I was used to seeing was not being drawn. I chalked it up to my video driver (this is a brand new system with all new hardware). But with 5.5, the dots are back.
Thanks a lot - I think this fixed all of my issues!
Thanks! updating to 5.5 fixed it for me as well
