the stack overflow has been reproduced on at least three different machines.. 
mine, goetz, and djbob. We can all reliably reproduce it.. myself and goetz on 
RC2 as well.

I suspect that whatever causes the stack overflow is also causing more memory 
allocations than deallocations, and that the deallocation of this memory 
happens only when you close radiant.

I suspect that these memory allocations eventually cause the system to run low 
on memory and start using virtual memory exclusively, causing the slowdown 
goetz describes. I have seen the slowdown only a very few times, when i had 
many other applications open using up system RAM. I have 512mb system ram, 
goetz has 128mb.
