Found a solution to a problem I had where VMWare fusion crashes for me when I am using a Socks Proxy as a network path.
We are aware of a problem between Fusion, Lion, and a SOCKS proxy. The short explanation is the version of one of the shared libraries we use seems to have issues on Lion. A workaround should be to turn off both automatic update checks and feedback (both are in VMware Fusion > Preferences).
Another possibile fix (for advanced users only!) is to back up /Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Frameworks/libcurl.4.dylib and replace it with a simlink to /usr/lib/libcurl.4.dylib . While this prevented the crash for me on a random internal build, I haven’t tried with 3.1.3, other things may break, YMMV, etc.
