I actually had to downgrade from Helios back to Ganymede on my OS X 
system.  I gave it plenty of RAM, but I still kept getting stack 
overflow errors when opening common.inc, theme.inc, and other large 
files.  The code completion is actually useful in Helios, which is more 
than I can say for Ganymede, but the repeated bombing on large files 
combined with randomly breaking my debugger on certain projects forced 
me to go back to the previous version.

I've heard that these are known, reported issues so I may try it again 
in a few months.

Caveat emptor and all that.
