MPEG2 files crash Finder when loaded in column view, OSX 10.3 Jaguar


I have a problem on two identical Mac G5/Dual 2.5GHz machines. Everytime I click on an MPEG2 file (.m2v) in a Finder window that is set to 'column' view, the Finder crashes as it tries to load the Quicktime preview movie. It doesn't matter what MPEG2 file it is or what machine.

Is this a problem with OSX 10.3.9, QuickTime 7 Pro???

Thanks for any help.
