    If I start the VM by right-clicking on the Parallels icon in the Doc and selecting my vm to start it, after I shut it down, I occasionally get a crash dialog.

    If I start the VM by clicking on the desktop link, when I shut it down, it crashes consistently.

    Has anyone had the same issue? When I get it next time I will post the stack here.

    FYI, I did reinstall Parallels Desktop and so far I didn't experience any crash.
