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.
