Loops crashing Filemaker (12/13)

Greetings, TechNet!

 

We have a long script that calls out multiple other scripts, accessing multiple tables across multiple FM databases. It loops through and performs actions in those tables, thousands and thousands of records... Any time we run this, or a similar script with a loop, FM crashes. The only solution so far that we've found is to put a pause at the end of the loop (something between .1 to 1 full second); this, however, means that some of our scripts now run for HOURS instead of MINUTES!

 

I have absolutely no idea why, has anybody else encountered this issue?
