Lotus 123 crashes

Lotus 123 crashes

Lotus 123 crashes

Using Lotus 123 vs 9.8 and XP SP3 running a large (>2M) spreadsheet (problems also exists with earlier lotus/XP versions, but not with smaller lotus spreadsheets), after copying/pasting large data volumes within the lotus file, any next move crashes Lotus with following well known message "Lotus 1-2-3 Application has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.."
I sent it many times to Microsoft but so far no improvements in spite of the XP updates. I have no access to Lotus because I have no IBM maintenance contract.
I have only .5M RAM, however 1M has the same problem.
My solution is after copying and pasting large data, to save the file, then move the cursor to a new location, let it crash and reload lotus + file

Anybody experienced this problem ? any solution ?
