Crash while using speech system

I had used three asterisks to separate scenes. Scrivner crashed when the text-to-speech operation tried to read a line of three asterisks. When I removed them, it didn’t crash.

What OS are you using? Does it crash in TextEdit too?

Ooops. Yes, it does also crash TextEdit.

I’m running Tiger 10.4

It sounds as though it may be a Tiger bug, but I just tried it on Tiger and it worked fine for me. Does this happen with all voices, or does it go away if you select another voice? It definitely sounds like something to do with the OS rather than Scrivener, though, given that it crashes TextEdit too.
All the best,
