FMPA 13 crashes in looping script

I've got a script that is being used to create PDF files. Its looping through a fair number of records, creating a PDF file on each one. After about 1500 PDF files created FileMaker 13 crashes. I've had to program the script to stop after 1000 records, I quit FM and start again.

 

I've got a about 125,000 records to loop through. I'd really like to let it run overnight but when it crashes regularly I obviously can't.

 

Any suggestions on if its possible to purge memory (assuming its a leak somewhere, either FM or the Adobe libraries) after a certain number of records and have it continue?

 

FileMaker 13, OS X Yosemite. 16 gb of RAM in the system. Not hosted.

 

It did the same thing on Mavericks too.
