I am having exactly the same problem with esp files and I do not know how
to fix it either.

As far a stability goes Mathematica 3.0 is very stable on my machine (a Mac
8500) except when I try to use Save as TeX. This produces frequent Type 11
errors.  In normal operation 3.0 does not crash at all on my machine and
seems more stable than 2.2 was. I have lots of physical RAM so I have set
the memory partitions much larger than the default values. If you have
enough RAM you might try this. I am also running the latest version of the
Mac OS with the power PC interrupt patch installed.
