IME, "dot zero" releases of Frame (ever since Adobe took control of
the product) have been extremely buggy. I usually don't upgrade until
the release has had at least 2 patches issued.

I have had Frame (7? it was a while ago - could have also been 6)
cause the "blue screen of death" on many occasions; however, much of
this was due to an ancient legacy document with a broken template.

Many times, your computing environment creates memory leaks or other
interactions that can cause Frame to die.

I manage to break most applications I use on a regular basis - they
either hang up or disappear.

Frame is as stable as anything else Adobe produces.
