When i was checking the rules on my console.I had set the scope to all objects and since then it kept on crashing on me. It would load the other views but never the authoring console.Followed this link http://blog.tyang.org/2010/07/06/scom-console-crashes/
And this gave me a fair idea of what could be happening.My scom zone had many management packs loaded. By many i mean many, more that 500.So I just checked this reg key on another zone and the classes that were scoped in that. This console had only the root management server scoped. I copied the reg key from this RMS and imported on the problematic one. Woo hoo!! My console was not crashing anymore and it opened at the RMS scope here too. Here is the reg key.
