parallels crash with 'cutting and pasting' macro

    I'm running Macro Express within Parallels.

    Certain macros are crashing parallels... it's a macro that involved a lot of 'cutting and pasting' on web pages using Macro Express to automate Firefox.

    I've disabled the 'Clipboard Sharing' feature from within Parallels Tools on the XP installation.

    I've tried slowing the macro down.

    It still seems to crash at random intervals -- it's always Parallels that crashes, never XP.

    The crash log shows:

    Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001)
    Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS (0x0001) at 0x01bd0000

    Thought I'd chime in here.

    I'm using Toad for SQL Server and have noticed lags when I copy+paste within the application. This occurs more and more if I'm switching between os x and win. Perhaps your hitting up against that same problem.

    No problems in VMWare though for what it's worth.

    On occasion I use Xnews for a news server. It makes heavy use of the clipboard and crashes in Parallels. I use bootcamp since to avoid the problem with the clipboard in parallels. Is there any way to expand the memory settings for the clipboard I wonder?
