HD to SD render pausing

I have this strange problem with Vegas 8.0c.

I'll have a 2 hour HDV or XDCAM HD project. I'll put the HD project veg in an empty DV Widescreen project, match my output aspect, and render to MPEG-2 for SD DVD.

It seems to go fine, I go away, and after a while, say maybe about 8% into the 2-pass VBR, everything will pause.

It's not a crash, but the Vegas CPU load goes down to zero, the elapsed time on the render stops incrementing, everything just pauses.

I accidentally discovered a while ago the way to get things going again. I simply launch another session of Vegas. As soon as the second session launches, everything restarts in the first session, and I can then close the second session.

After this restart, sometimes the project renders to completion, sometimes it pauses a few more times and I need to restart it again in the same manner.

It's certainly better than crashing, but has anyone else seen this problem? And is there a way to avoid it pausing at all?

Thanks.

Wow... never seen that one before. Really interesting. Might be worth reporting to Sony.

Yeah, I'll check with Sony. Actually, I'll be at NAB Show so I'll ask them in person when I visit the SCS booth.

More info: The pausing happened a number of times in this render, so I tried other ways to restart it. I found that launching Vegas OR DVD Architect will restart the render. Either one! No other program launched will restart the render.
