I also view this program as a rescue, in particular because "Terminal 
Services" were dropped in the transition
from Nextstep to OSX, and I had shell scripts under Nextstep for doing 
this (and many other things).  I used these
shell services together with Create.app and Tailor.app, which worked 
absolutely great for doing transparencies with math formulas.

Alas, Create.app survived the transition NS->OSX, however, similarly to 
what you wrote above,
Create crashes after doing a few drag and drop equations from Equation 
I had thought it was Create's problem, but from your msg it is likely 
Equation Service may be part of the problem. I have contacted the author
