Crashing out, slow rezz, slow load, etc.  I went back to the Release 1.0.2.2451 and the only two issues I'm currently having is my inventory doesn't fully load about half the time and I crash out when I have the upload window open too long when looking for files on my pc.  Something seems to have changed along the way.

Can you compile the viewer yourself? 
It would help a lot if you could pin point the exact revision
at which the problems start to occur.

Not all revisions are changes to snowglobe
unfortunately, you could try a binary search
for the following revisions (these are the ones that make a change to contributions.txt)

Binary search meaning: you start with compiling 2580 and test if you crash with
a self-compiled viewer (possibly in Debug mode). Then 2451 and test if you don't.
Then 2502, and depending on whether you get the same crash or not (a different
crash means you have to restart again) you either try 2463 or 2559, etc.
