Copying many cds to a stack causes standalone to hang

I'm writing a product catalog application (for windows).
The standalone is a splashscreen.
A .rev file contains the main body of the application.
Product pages (cards) are copied to the main body on start up (so pages can
be added, edited, deleted). Product pages are between 200 - 750 KB (text +
This worked fine until my client added many more product pages.
Now the standalone hangs after 50 or so cds have been added.
I just copy the cds, but here's the script (well most of it) to show exactly
how it's done...
repeat for each line tCatalogPage in tFileNameStore
start using stack tCatalogPage
go cd 1 of stack tCatalogPage
setProdPgRez -- catalogPage stack script, matches cd appearence to screen
rez (just resizes & moves things around on the cd)
put the number of cds of stack mainBody into tLastCd
go cd tLastCd of stack mainBody
copy cd 1 of stack tCatalogPage to stack mainBody
close stack tCatalogPage -- destroyStack & purgeWindow
go cd 1 of stack splashScreen
set lockMessages to false -- advance progress bar
set lockMessages to true
Potentially the number of catalog pages could run into the 100's. I wanted
them within the one open stack to speed up product searches and travel
Does anybody have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
