I am also having some problems with gnome-do crashing that way as well, and maybe with all of our inputs, the devs will be able to solve them.
As far as your other problem, which is restarting gnome-do once it crashes, you can always try this workaround that I found quite helpful: Assign a shortcut key to restarting gnome-do, such as Ctrl+Shift+Space and use that instead to relaunch it.

I had the same problem, and after running the
suggested by Tiede, I got the following error
googling 'SIGABRT gnome-do mono' gives some background, and reinstalling mono seems to be the key. The following worked for me:
If you've just upgraded to a new version of Ubuntu, and you're now having problems with Gnome-Do in dock mode, from personal experience I'd suggest reinstalling Do. I had major compatibility problems with it immediately after upgrading to Karmic, and a reinstall fixed the problem.
