Looking at this crash log, its not immediately clear that Syphon is the root cause.

The crash is :

Graphics hardware encountered an error and was reset: 0x00000000 caused by the Apple graphics libraries (gpusSubmitDataBuffers).

– and more importantly the crashed thread has no Syphon calls at all – it looks as though this is an issue with the AMD GPU from what I can tell.

I can only imagine that either:

a) Syphon has a very small leak somewhere for some resource that is causing this issue. However a leak in OpenGL resources is usually very very obvious.

b) the Kernel assigns some values for IOSurfaces that aren’t being cleaned up somewhere properly and eventually it runs out of IOSurface IDs because it doesnt want to re-use them. No idea, total conjecture.

Can you test on different hardware?
