I've installed MySQL Preference Pane on my MacBook to start/stop MySQL from my System Preferences and it works ok, except that once in a while System Preferences just quits and shows this message:
The application System Preferences quit unexpectedly. The problem may have been caused by the MySQL plug-in.
MySQL remains up and running and I can just restart System Preferences without any trouble, but what causes this crash and how can I fix it?
Here's what I see on my OS X Console:
