Version 4.6 crashes on MacBook Pro using OS X 10.9

Upgraded to the latest version (4.6) this morning and the app crashes when trying to open an existing safe or create a new safe. Bug report has been sent to both Apple and App 77 Informatica e Servicios.

Latest Update is NG

Not sure if it is me or more universal, but just applied latest update and it blew the program out of the water. Continually terminates unexpectedly after start up.
