Back in December, the team behind Pixelmator posted a lengthy apology on their blog after a bug in OS X 10.8.2 would sometimes cause Macs to restart or the app to crash when intensively using the popular image editor.
It appears that the issue has now been resolved with the release of OS X 10.8.3 last week. From Pixelmator's blog:
Since the release of the OS X 10.8.3 update last Thursday, we’ve been thoroughly testing Pixelmator on it. We can finally confirm that Pixelmator’s biggest problem (caused by NVIDIA graphics card drivers) is now solved! For that, we owe a tremendous thanks to the guys at Apple and NVIDIA for listening to us and probably many other developers, and then doing something about it.
Go ahead, everyone, and download the OS X 10.8.3 update to your Macs!

I didn't get any crashes but I was wondering what was making my Mac restart now and then.... I was blaming a new external drive and now I know was Pixelmator! So far so good! Keep the good work guys!
