QGIS Crashes when writing to PDF

My QGIS crashes during the export of maps to pdf. I already uninstalled and installed QGIS twice. The function worked for several times but quit functioning after a while. Does anyone know what this problem causes? I use a new Mac (2012). Could there be a problem with that?

Thanks a lot for your help!

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Do you have labels with buffers, and "old" labelling from properties of the layer? Then you should switch to "new" labelling via the abc-icon.

Hi Francisco, thanks for your fast reply. Unfortunately I cannot find the questions wit the same content and the solution provided there. Can you give me a hint? – Josi Sep 12 '12 at 13:11
Hi Andre, no, I use the new labeling and I do not have any buffers in use. – Josi Sep 12 '12 at 13:17
The question with same content is listed on the right under "Linked". Unfortunately, nobody had an answer to that. – AndreJ Sep 12 '12 at 14:24
I'm not sure if this bug is related to your problem: – AndreJ Sep 12 '12 at 14:41
I finally found out that it WAS the labeling, as mentioned by Andre Joost. Only using the labeling edited with the ABC-icon there were fewer problems. Thanks for the very helpful tipps! – Josi Oct 23 '12 at 18:14
