Incremental Spatial Autocorrelation Model Performance

First, let me say that this tool is a great time saver!

However, I have started using it in models and I've found that something severely affects my system usability (to the extent where other apps stop responding). Any ideas what could cause this?

The dataset I'm using for the model has just under 20,000 points, which I have modelled as a whole and then split into three roughly even sub-populations based on geographic boundaries.

I'm running ArcGIS 10 SP1 on Win 7 x64 with a quad-core Xeon, 4 GB RAM and SATA RAID. I've checked the system resources and there's nothing obviously wrong (ArcMap is using a whole core, but I expect that).

Also, is it possible to customise the name of the graph output when this tool is set up to run multiple times? The field where this is set in the model is greyed out and I have to recreate the earlier graphs manually as they appear to be overwritten. I guess I could customise the Python code, but this seems like a standard function for modelbuilder tools.
