This problem is still an issue, and I don't want to stop spotlight from indexing my Dropbox folder.
However I have removed the annoyance of the incessant dialog box by entering this command in terminal:
defaults write com.apple.CrashReporter DialogType none
The crash still occurs as I can see it in the console, but I am not shown a dialog box every time.
Thanks to this info:
Turning the message into a notification did not wortk - but turning the reporter off did.
SO the solution I found was to format the Mac. I deleted the Hard drive and reisntalled the OS. It no longer affects the Mac now.
The process was restart the mac press Command key + R and enter recovry mode, disk utility, delete the hard drive by clicking erase and after exit and resintall OS. This solved it for me.
I can tell you that this issue happens consistently on multiple brand new machines that I have deployed, so I doubt very much that reformatting is a true solution for most people.
I've found that on many machines the crash report popup is just supressed, but you can still see them piling up if you go to the Console app and check the User Reports folder.
I am having the same problem here, (thanks to this forum I managed to identify that the issue was coming from Dropbox SmartSync) Have you sorted it yet??? It is quite unbearable. The only 'quick fix' I found is to leave the error message in the corner of my screen and at least it doesn't keep on popping up every 10 seconds... Surely we can agree this is not a solution. Please advise, I do not want to disable mdworker or Spotlight.
