not sure where to look - home is named 'Brian' but i don't see anything in the crash log with anything that looks like a name
the title/header of the window System Preferences_2009-08-22-004151_localhost.crash
That's where to look: the filename. “localhost” is (was) your computer name, supporting the theory that it was not assigned a unique name at all.
That's strange. Usually, Mac OS X sets the computer name to “Brian <lastname>'s Computer” when you create your first account.
Oh, well. Strange as that is, it apparently is something we have to check for and handle.
