Topic: Creating pdf from ps file

Hey all, every so often Distiller on our OS 10.2.6 machine running Acrobat 6 Pro will error out when creating a pdf from a ps file. A reboot seems to fix the issue for a while then another reboot is needed. I've trashed the preferences and even reinstalled Acrobat, no dice. Here is the error log:

Command: Distiller
PID: 628

Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001)
