Memory use increases until VS gest so slow I need to close and relaunch

I am showing the Resharper memory use on the VS status bar and I can see the number increase during the day until VS gets so slow that I need to close it and launch it again to continue working.

I have noticed though that the Beta version of R# 4.0 uses far less memory than the previous, Beta Candidate.

Yesterday as I was adding elements to an Ajax UpdatePanel, Resharper crashed and displayed an error dialog 2x.

I've got a similar issue using Resharper 3.1, VS 2008, C# ASP.NET projects. The solution has 5 sizeable projects. When I run without R# running (installed but turned off) devenv.exe is using 225Mb, with R# turned on it's using 745Mb! Worse than that the CPUs are almost maxed out when I type more than a few characters and so there's a pause of 0.5 - 1 second for each character. I'm running a core 2 duo @ 2Ghz with 2G RAM.

I'd really like to continue using R# but it's impossible! How stable is the version 4.0 beta considered to be at the moment?

ReSharper 4 is quite stable. Moreover, the memory usage in ASPs was
optimized drastically in 4.0.
