CodeWarrior MacOS 9.5 stops responding on C++ compile

I've just downloaded the 9.6 update but have not yet installed it. Nonetheless, CW has been working well on other projects (plugin libs) without incident. But a new plugin port is giving me pause.

This is MacOSX 10.4.5, CodeWarrior Development Studio MacOS 9.5, XCode 2.2.1 installed.

All of my plugins are developed on Windows in Visual C++ 6.0 before being ported to MacOS. After copying and fixing a standard project file and adding all of the appropriate source code, the compiler continues until a particularly large class (.cpp) file. Then it just hangs (spin wheel, "Not Responding" in Activity Monitor). This code compiles cleanly on VC++ and porting differences have been added to the code.

I donot know if it is the project size for the lib (VC++ churns out a 600KB lib - and this is nowhere near complete). Or if it is the code size for that class file. With no crash information, no warnings, no errors, there is little that I can do to determine a cause. This class is integral to the project, so it cannot just be ignored.

Thank you,
