revised Does the pgfplots manual crash your Preview and/or Skim app on OSX?
Added MWE that can cause crashes, as per Christian Feuergäser's suggestion.

comment Does the pgfplots manual crash your Preview and/or Skim app on OSX?
as you suggested, I found the crashing examples and turned them into MWE. I will edit the question to include them, though if there's another way I should go about this, I will be happy to oblige.

The pastebin urls are appending a closing bracket, making them resolve to an Unknown Paste ID. If you remove the bracket they should work.

Here's the crash report I get on page 120 and onwards.[pastebin.com/iC94c6Dz]. Here's the crash report for page 344: [pastebin.com/iMLV9ayt], and for good measure, here's the Preview crash report: [pastebin.com/MPD6bsXf]. I don't know how to read them; I didn't find the word "corruption" or "pgfplots" in them, but you may know what to look for.

Well, this is interesting. I looked for surface plots but nothing happened. Then I scrolled a bit trying to find more surface plots and managed to consistently crash it on page 344. I can also crash it straight from the table of contents by clicking or hovering over the heading that links to page 344 (Polar axes ). Same thing with page 120 (Parametrized plots), though unlike page 344, page 120 gives me a crash report every time.

I had the version from October 26, 2012. It seems to be the latest version. I downloaded it again, this time from the SourceForge site, and saved it to a different location. Scrolled using trackpad gestures. Soon enough, it had crashed Preview again.

Before today, it had never crashed before; not with the pgfplotsmanual nor with any other large document. At first I thought it was an issue with Preview, but then it also crashed Skim. Both times I was either zooming in or moving around the document using gestures. I think I have Acrobat somewhere in this machine. I will (reluctantly) give it a try and report back. In the mean time, I just crashed Skim again (just because I could!) and have the report dump at hand. Any suggestions as to what I should do with it?

comment \pgfcalendar@datetojulian error when plotting a time series using pgfplots
I missed the part in the manual that says that indexing starts at zero. Thanks for that! The data plots well for the MWE with only one problem left to solve: the width of the bars makes them overlap with each other. However, that's another question. I'll see what the manual has to say about that. Thanks!

comment Beamer shadows are different in pdfLateX and XeLaTeX
I was due for an upgrade anyway and mactex was just sitting there on my desktop, waiting... Anyway, it worked! I upgraded to v3.20, and the compilation ran without errors and produced the expected shadows. Thanks! Would you write this as an answer so I can accept it?

tlmgr kindly requested that I upgrade to TeXLive 2012. I guess I should finally get around to it. I'll tell you how it goes in a few hours.

comment How align columns in a tabular environment?
I tested this as shown, without the missing \` and align-current` does the job. I also evaluated your posted portion of your .emacs and it still works as expected. Does this happen in every file or only in this one?
