OK, a binary for testing is now available here:

Please test if this fixes your problems on Snow Leopard and report back. 
Also please report whether the autosave slowdown is bearable, or any strange 
behaviour that might occur.

If the fix proves to do what it ought to (i.e., prevent the pseudo-crashes 
on autosave), we will release a patched specifically for Snow 
Leopard soon.

The binary is not such a patched 1.6.4, but rather a snapshot of the current 
1.6.5svn trunk. It should be stable, but be advised it's not "officially" 
declared stable.
