I could finally manage to compile Emacs from source. This is something I wanted 
to do already half a year ago, but it didn't work (many errors) and I didn't 
know how to fix this. This is how I came to http://emacsformacosx.com/builds. 
But thanks to the post on 
It finally worked without flaws. I worked with Emacs the whole day today and 
did not experience a single crash. I hope it remains like this :-). 
My guess is that the final problem came from the fact that the Emacs I 
originally used was built under 10.6.8 and I ran it on 10.7.3. Why the 
log-files from Console.app showed org-mode is still strange to me, but I'm 
definitely not an expert on these issues.

I'll get back to you if I experience another crash. For now, it seem's good.
