Premiere is intent on destroying my life

After several months of premiere crashing every 10 minutes I was finally able to get a rough cut of my film done.

Now, suddenly, whenever I try to open up my project, premiere will shut down with not even a warning message.

I tried deleting the media cache files, error checking the hard drive, tried going back to some older project files, nothing helps.

If I load a project file unrelated to this project, premiere will not crash.

Using CS3.1.1

4 gb ram

1tb raid drive

System is up to spec

The project is 90 minute feature length HDV.

Project contains several hundred clips so it takes premiere 25 minutes to load. The crashing occurs at the end of the loading. There is usually no error message, premiere just quietly shuts down.
