  That command works almost instantaneously on 6.0.1 for linux 32-bit at 
2700MHz, 3GB RAM. However, the caveat is "works" -- the plot is ridiculous, 
and has many extraneous "mesh" lines all over. This is somewhat to be 
expected when the range values are on the order of (+/-) 10^180. 
   My recommendation is to only show the "interesting" parts of the function 
(this includes the discontinuity along the line x = y and the "slump" around 
the origin) by restricting the x- and y-domains to perhaps (+/- 5) and using 
PlotRange->10^4  or so.
