It crashes frequently on me too.
But it's always my fault as a result of me having made a mistake in my skin.xml
So, are you sure the skin.xml you are using is in perfect order?
(all elements in it having correct references and relationships etc.)
For me, when there are mistakes in it, it crashes with a crash report pop-up that leads me in the right direction to fix the issue.
How does it crash for you?
