Powerstore 3, Dreamweaver Applications panel bug

In trying to customize Powerstore 3.1 using Dreamweaver CS3, I've encountered a serious bug that cause Dreamweaver to close. Whenever I try to open the applications panel (in Dreamweaver) on certain pages of the Powerstore, it immediately causes Dreamweaver to close and shutdown. I believe I have narrowed it down to the pages that are similiar to the ones that DataAssist usually creates - the product detail, search, etc. pages. I'm not sure if these Powerstore pages were created using DataAssist or can be edited with it. Either way, I do not have access to edit them at all. For sake of ease, I will just call them the dataassist pages. Please note: so far this issue doesn't seem to affect any other data-driven or static pages. It seems to only affect the "dataassist pages". Also, this does not appear to be a Dreamweaver issue either, as I can open and access the applications panel on other pages for sites that are not created by Powerstore. I can even access the DataAssist pages of my sites that are not Powerstore sites.

Back to Powerstore, I can open and view the dataassist pages. However, once I open the Dreamweaver Applications Panel, Dreamweaver closes and shuts down.

I will also mention another issue I noticed before that may be related. I've also only noticed this only after using Powerstore 3 that soon after trying to customize the code - nothing too fancy, just working with the form to create new fields and customize the validations - Dreamweaver would clock everytime I first opened a dynamic page or the Applications panel. It would also do this whenever I edited the page or any WebAssist features on the page. After clocking for about 30 seconds, a script timeout dialog would appear saying do you want to continue running the script. I would have to select "No" then the dialog would close and the updates would be made with no other obvious issues. It referenced a Dreamweaver configurations folder file. I would be more specific, but it appears that the problem is becoming more serious as I can no longer access my dynamic forms to recreate the issue. As now upon opening them with the Applications panel causes Dreamweaver to close. I have just noticed this new problem upon submitting this forum thread.

I have not too long ago troubleshooted Dreamweaver, by reinstalling my sites and WebAssist on a fresh installation of Dreamweaver (CS3). At first there appeared to be no trace of the problem. It didn't take long for the clocking and script timeout to start appearing again, and about a week later I'm losing access all together to edit dynamic pages with WebAssist features on them. I can open other sites pages, dynamic and static, in Dreamweaver, use the Applications panel and edit content with WebAssist features with no problem. This seems to be localized to Powerstore 3 and a possible configuration issue or growing file corruption.

I hope you can understand how frustrating this is to me and how much time I've lost with the compounded script runtime errors and troubleshooting. I cannot even complete my work as I have limited access to customize the Powerstore. Please help.
