Cyberduck cause my computer to crash

Platform: Mac OS X 10.5


I have another computer, a G5 I had never used cyberduck on a PPC before, but like a month ago for the first time I installed it on a PPC and a week later it crashed my computer, at the time I didnt came to my mind that it would be cyberduck. I just thought my drive was gone. So I ended up buying another drive for my computer and saving that one for future repair, and 2 days ago I installed cyberduck again, my computer crashed again, its an spotlight error that doesn't let my computer start. They drive had a damage message when using the utility tool. Still I didn't have a clue what was causing it, until ran the DiskWarrior Disk on my old drive, and luckily it repaired the drive. Then is when I say the repaired files from DiskWarrior, it had 6 jpgs and Cyberduck, im sure jpgs didn't cause my computer to fail. This is when i went to a forum i recently went looking for help and sent a direct message to someone that had the same problem but didn't know what it was. I asked him if he had Cyberduck installed before the computer crashed. He said Yes, that he had recently installed it. I love Cyberduck never had a problem with it on Intel, only one time that corrupted my files on my hosting server, which again made me think that such program is capable of damaging files.

Its not coincidence, its your program. It works fine on my Intel comp > IMac. I remember your program caused my files to get corrupted everytime when i open a file on my server, where i sent a bug report on it and you guys fixed it and even posted it. Your program was known to cause files to get corrupted before. The G5 computer was working fine, never had a problem with it, until Cyberduck was installed (which was the first time ever that i tried it on a PPC). Then I bought a better hard drive with 32bit cache, thinking it was a drive issue, installed my program, everything was fine for a week, then i installed Cyberduck and the same exact problem. The computer couldnt start because of the spotlight error. When I search the files that were repaired with Diskwarrior, CyberDuck was one of them. I believe your program corrupted a file for Spotlight which is needed to run Leopard. I asked someone else in the forum and he told me "yes, my computer gave me the error right after I installed Cyberduck, it was working fine before that". Trust me, it's your program. The G5 is one of my computers that I only use for music, I only have 2 third parties running on the G5 which is Protools with some waves plugin and Reason with its refills, and they been working fine for years. And there's no way those programs are the type to cause file corruption like yours did a while back.
