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 has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new 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
