Help reading crash log without third party code

  • I am rather perplexed by this crash log.  I have received a near
    identical log from a couple of users so I do not believe it is an
    environmental issue.

    The crash is occurring on 10.5 and 10.5.1 systems and I am not
    understanding what it is telling me other than it is crashing in
    Apple's code.

    Since I am not able to duplicate this on any of my systems I am not
    able to capture it at all.  I am using the new xib files from
    interface builder for all of my UI elements -- is it possible that
    there is some corruption?

    Any clues or insights would be greatly appreciated.

    It looks like some object in a menu of yours is invalid. The code is
    crashing while attempting to send a message to an object.
