Could it be that the resources (.RSRC file) are set to "Preload"? Just a
shot in the dark (to accompany the straw grabbing).

For every resource there are six attributes that can be set via the "Get
Resource Info" menu item in ResEdit:

   []System Heap   []Locked       []Preload
   []Purgeable     []Protected    []Compressed

My instinct would be to check that the "Preload" attribute is not set.
Also, many of the gurus on this list suggest setting resources as
"Purgeable".
