oh forgot to mention: also crashes 2.69 release... so it is either an old bug or possibly the file is corrupted in some way?

Ok, just tested: the file does open in 2.66, so it seems less likely it is corrupt, and more likely an error introduces sometime between 2.66 and 2.69

Just loaded in Blender 2.69 official build 64 bit windows no problems with loading the file.
Maybe its your system ? (not saying linux is bad, but perhaps something got broken?), its not a general bug, but somehow operating system makes a difference

thanks campbell!!! you rock :)
PGTART: very well could have been related to OS. but now is resolved thanks to campbell.
