you are right - gem was not loaded.

actually i am using 2.4.22 exactly because of this (and because my 
measurements show that i runs faster than the new kernel when it comes 
to graphic processing on this computer).

for sure, the reasons for that crash cannot be found by discussing it 
on the list. i was just so upset since i had not saved for some minutes 
and what i tried to do looked good for the first time. you know the 
process. maybe it was just a ruined quicktime movie....

but it could have been that someone experienced the same.
