Sure, I'm listening.  I think you're better off trying to recompile 
BibTeX, unless Mike McCracken has some great idea for making this work 
with BibDesk :).  If this required a separate file for each annotation, 
that could get really messy in a hurry.

I think James Howison recompiled BibTeX with a larger buffer size, so 
you might try posting to the bibdesk-users list.  Are you using the 
annotations in your document?  I've never seen this error personally, 
so I'm curious as to how it fails.
