Howdy its quite known among TeXies that under MacOSX the pgfplots manual brings Preview down on certain pages (with a lot of 3D content). Heres the (significant part of ) the log.

My question is: which one of the functions (classes, whatever) listed below is responsible for the crash and is there anything i can do to stop preview form crashing when comming to a bug in the pdfkit?
