Koiyu is right - you should probably shoot this over to Super User. In the meantime, you might try moving your primary scratch disk to a different hard drive. Go to Preferences -> Performance and select a different scratch disk. A firewire or USB 2.0 external hard drive should work fine. You can also address your Memory usage in that same tab.
