I'm having ongoing trouble with Flash Builder 4.5.1 hanging/crashing during startup.
Sometimes the following Terminal command fixes the issue:
cd ~/Documents/Adobe\ Flash\ Builder\ 4.5/cascaded/308971/configuration/.settings
However this isn't a silver bullet solution, and sometimes the only way is to uninstall and reinstall FB4.5.
But this is a major hassle, especially after 3 or 4 times!
I am running Mac OS X 10.7 and have updated to FB 4.5.1 Premium and also installed Subversion/Subclipse as well as the BlackBerry PlayBook SDK.
Problems seem to occur when working in SVN projects.
I have also noticed that the Delete and Arrow keys and Right Click fails to work sometimes also.
Is there a way to reset / clear FB 4.5 Prefs / Workbench?
Here is the console report below:
/Applications/Adobe/Adobe\ Flash\ Builder\ 4.5/Adobe\ Flash\ Builder\ 4.5.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ Flash\ Builder\ 4.5 ; exit;

Having the same problem but for the first time on FB 4.6. Did you find any solution short of a reinstall if deleteing the suggested file didn't work?
Same problem :-(
Delete the Adobe Flash Builder 4.5 folder from your Documents (assuming you don't have anything valuable in there). That seemed to work for me, as I don't keep my projects in there but there were some temp files that were breaking it. You'll probably have to re-inport your projects.
Adobe, I'm getting very sick of your (expensive) products wasting my time.
