Last few releases quicklook is causing crashes

Reported by Jon | November 20th, 2019 @ 02:55 PM

This has been happening for maybe a month or so of beta releases.
It may have even started on a real release, I'm not sure exactly.
Not every time, but most of the time, using quicklook on attachments is causing the app to crash.
I've seen notifications indicating that the crash reports are being sent, if that helps.
Still happening as of 5665.

    Could you also try r5666?

    If you get another crash using QuickLook then send it to me using “Help > Send Feedback” since I seem to have trouble locating the related crash reports.

    So far no issues on r5666. I'll update here if that changes.

    Thanks. I'll mark is a non-reproducible for now (on r5666).

    Hey Benny. Had a crash today, sending the feedback message now.

    Thanks for the crash report! It seems to show very clearly that the problem is that I'm not correctly handling that QuickLook is multi-threaded. This could have various side-effects including crashes like the ones you have had, but possibly also more serious issues.

    I've added a fix (I believe) for the next update. Let me know if you have any issues after that update (it'll be r5673+).

    Great, thanks Benny. If I see any issues after the next beta I'll let you know.
