This occurs on multiple Macs (running either Leopard or Snow Leopard) in our office. The links are connected to conditional text in InCopy. Here's the scenario:
1) Open the InDesign document and select the linked text.
2) Get a dialog box: "You must check out the contents of this frame in order to make changes. Check out now?" Click "Yes."
3) Copy the text of the link, right-click and select "New Hyperlink."
4) In the "New Hyperlink" window, paste in the text of the URL (leaving in the http://).
5) Uncheck "Shared Hyperlink Destination." InDesign immediately crashes.
I've been told by our designers that you have to uncheck "Shared Hyperlink Destination" to prevent changes to all of the other related links in the document. I don't work with InDesign on a regular basis and have very limited knowledge of InCopy. I tested the current version of InDesign (7.5.3) on my Mac and the same crash occurred.
Here is the first part of the crash report:
