  fatal error upon launch, -199 error code

This problem was posted orginally by jmcfizix on the bugreports page and it was
suggested that it be posted here as well.

Both jmcfizix and I have had the same experience.  POV RAY had been working fine
on my Macbook (Mac OS 10.5.6, 2.16 GHZ Intel Duo,1 Gb 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM) for
over a year.  Now when I launch, I get a fatal  error message and a -199 error
code.  The launching stalls out on the "Reading Preferences", then shows the
error message.

I am using POV-Ray Mac 3.6 dated Aug 1, 2004 7:23 pm and downloaded directly
from the povray site.

Restarting the computer and downloading a new copy of POV-ray both failed to fix
the problem.

I cannot think of any changes I made to the system to cause this.  POV-ray last
worked on 15 March 2009 and a week later it no longer worked.  \

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
