Have you tried simply raising the heap setting? It’s not in the UI, but in a config file. There is also a heap monitor option built-into CFB (in the Preferences) which can be enabled.
Let me know if you need details for either of these (but you should be able to find both with some searching).
Thanks for pointing that tip out. I will give it a try and try to come back and answer that you had the "Correct Answer" if it doesn't freeze this next week.
For others that stumble across this post, here is what I found.
In Coldfusion Builder 3
For viewing the error log:
click on the menu "Window > Show View > Other > General > Error log"
For Viewing the Heap Size:
"Window > Preferences > General > [x] Show heap Status"
You will then see it on the bottom of CFB as a bar.
Right-clicking on the heap bar you can select "Show Max Heap"
"Run Garbage Collector" runs System.gc()
Increasing Heap Size:
Locate cfbuilder.ini (Mine was located at C:\ColdFusionBuilder3\cfbuilder.ini)
Change these settings:
-Xmx512m (Max heap size)
-Xms256m (min heap size)
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m (3rd part of the memory, max Value of Permanent Space)
-XX:PermSize=64m (initial value of permanent space)

So how did it go?
So far so good. I haven't had a freeze up since I did one of the two:
1) Your suggestion, raising the heap setting
2) Disabling Syntax Checking (Window > Preferences > Coldfusion > Profiles > Editor > Syntax Checking > "Enable Syntax Checking" (unchecked)
Maybe I am writing prematurely, if I have a freeze again I will let you know.
I just had a freeze up and my heap size looks great. I guess something else is messing with it.
