FM 12 Advanced Crash and other behavior issues

I was working on a converted (FM11 to FM12 ) file opening a long report, 151 pages. At the script step Go to record/page[last] after a long delay FileMaker crashed and generated a the attached crash report. This happened on a Mac Book Pro 2.8 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo with 8 Gbytes 1067 MHz DDR3 ram running OS X 10.6.8 FileMaker is FMPA 12.0v1 connected to FMS 12 Advaced 12.0.1.178

 

Has anyone else had this type of problem?

 

Comparing process time and user experience between the FM11 version and the FM12 version, the FM 11 version completes this step in a few seconds, it does put up a spinning ball while it is working on this step. In FM12 it seems to a couple of minutes to complete this script step. During this period it is as if FileMaker has hung. You can't access any menus, or start the debugger. There isn't a spinning ball or progress bar that would indicate the application is still working. With the exception of the crash, wait long enough and the script step completes and then everything runs normally.

 

If I have the Activity monitor running, CPU activity is almost at max on 1 CPU and up somewhat on the other.
