This is a comment on, rather than a solution to, your problem. I had similar problems under OS9.1 whenever I was grading a series of student notebooks and pasting in comments from a fixed notebook of standard comments. The problem went away when I switched to OS X and Mathematica 4.1.5 ( the .5 flags the OS X version). Version 4.1.5 seems much stabler. However there was a frustrating intermediate period where I upgraded to OS 9.2 to run Mathematica in the classic environment under OS X. Mathematica lost track of its password file (or whatever it uses) and asked for the number every time the front end started. The kernel would not start at all. Several hours on the phone to wri support did not help. Reinstalling under OS 9.2 did not help. Finally I hit upon reverting to OS 9.1, reinstalling, and the reverting to 9.2 (You can have as many different Mac operating systems on your disk as you like-contrary to popular belief). However, this fix would last only about a week and then I would have to redo it. In short, I had to upgrade both Mathematica and the OS to fix the problem.
