"Often this happens to a single, heavily edited project. Every edit creates more data stored to the .camproj file. After every edit, the .camproj is rewritten and as more data is added, subsequent rewrites take longer. If a .camproj becomes too complex, it can crash.  We normally see crashes occur more often with projects where the .camproj file is above 1MB in file size.  That does not mean all projects that are larger than that will crash, it just means it will have a better chance of crashing as compared to a smaller project."
