Sounds like ACR is exiting prematurely, not exactly crashing.
Hopefully the ACR team can reproduce this and get it fixed soon.
I have just discovered that I have the same problems (see earlier post above) using CS4 and Camera Raw 5.7 as I described in using CS5 and Camera Raw 6.0 and 6.1.
The acr window suddenly closes if i hit "v" (to hide) while in spot brush routine and then hit "v" a second time (to reveal). Happens now with CS4 and CS5. The only difference is that with CS4 the image opens in Photoshop while in CS5 the image disappears.
I am suspecting that perhaps there is something wrong with my system. Any ideas before I have to reformat and reinstall ???

I thank you and apologize to you and all readers.
My problems with photoshop and camera raw were due to use of a utility app called TYPINATOR. It apparently intercepted the keyboard shortcuts and resulted in the bizarre behavior that I was having with camera raw.
I disabled TYPINATOR and this behavior has ceased.
I SHOULD POINT OUT THAT THERE IS A NEW VERSION OF TYPINATOR AND PERHAPS THE CONFLICT HAS BEEN CORRECTED.
I admit to being a moron. No need to aggravate the ACR team!

Not your fault -- sometimes OS extensions and utilties will have bugs that cause conflicts with certain programs (and not necessarily others).
Glad you found the cause.
And you should try the new version - if it doesn't work, contact the author and let them know about the problem.
