I was doing this, just hoping for a quicker fix.  I eventually found it - it was *your* fault! ;)  Nothing to do with my crash at all (just a coincidence that that was the first time I restarted Outlook since updating).

The fix you uploaded to check for bsddb3 is what broke it.  I auto-changed to use bsddb3, and that was what caused the problem.  Setting use_db to False fixed it.  I'll leave you to tell me what this means ;)

I did have to reset the toolbars for the buttons to reappear (the addin loaded, but no buttons appeared).  Odd.  The sooner those buttons are nice permanent ones, the better ;)
