    I found a way to replicate the issue (Motorola Gallery closing on launch).

    If you have pictures (already indexed/cached) in a couple of folders, then you decide you want to hide the pictures in one of those folders by creating a .nomedia file in that folder using a File Explorer, it is a matter of time (next restart?) before the Motorola Gallery will close on launch.

    The cooliris 3D gallery (Gallery3DMT.apk) is a little more resistant to this. It will display corresponding "blank" pictures.

    Simple fix: copy the files in that folder to some other folder that already had a .nomedia file in it.
    Then use the cooliris 3D gallery to delete the blank pictures.
    The Motorola Gallery will now work.

    Good to know! The .nomedia/gallery closing bug already bit me once, when I tried to exclude all of my music album covers from my gallery. Big mistake! But now it looks like I can use Cooliris to do what I wanted to do all along! Thanks!
