Tracker shuts itself down

A student contacted me yesterday and wrote:

Tracker closes itself every time I try to use it. I am working on a project for school. Every time I try to measure something (sometimes even when I just click at something) Tracker shuts itself down. I was wondering if it could be that it is not working cause I am working on a Macbook?

Then she got back to me again today with:

I have found a solution. The program will not shut down anymore if I have multiple tabs open.

Has anybody else experienced or heard of this issue? Please post if you have to help me figure out how and why it happens. Thanks!  Doug
