When I try to start the 6.0.4 Client is just crashes.  My 6.0.2 Client works just fine.  Any ideas?  Here is a snippet of the error dump:

Both RTC 6.0.3 and 6.0.4 crash on my Mac, but both can be launched this way.
1. Right-click on the Eclipse application and choose Show Package Contents.
2. Get into the folder Contents, then MacOS, where you can see the eclipse Unix executable.
3. Double-click on the eclipse executable.

If everything goes to plan, you should see the splash screen and it should work as usual. You have to launch it this way every time though.

That appeared to work.  Don't know what changed from 6.0.2 to 6.0.4 the requires me to do this. Also,  If I choose to option "keep in doc" on the icon.  I can't restart the app without using this workaround.
