Crashing is not a "feature", but they are well aware of it. :-) It has (as Akemi pointed out to me) a steep learning curve, but it is extremely powerful. My wife is trying to figure out how to get the audio and video synced properly, when she edits... kino is much easier to learn, but probably much less powerful too.
