Hi

My answer would be to reinstall your software, then try again.

Always works for me.

now i can't remember why i was using caustics in the first place!

but you think using plugins would make it a problem?

well , when I used HyperSmooth (reflection plugin from 3D evasion), it was crashing all the time with Caustics turned ON, I have been advised to first turning the plugins OFF (not removing, simply OFF), do a render with caustics ON, rendered fine, then turned them back ON one by one (I know it could be long, but you could do a very small render like 16x16), and then it rendered fine !!

cheers
