Model Builder/ArcGIS crash using Spatial Join in a model

I'm trying to create a simple model that performs a spatial join of a dem (points, target features) to catch basins (points, join features). I'm doing a One-to-One join with the Closest option. I can perform the join with no issues using the Spatial Join tool in the toolbox, but anytime I try to do this within a model in model builder, ArcMap crashes. I'm using ArcGIS 10 and it doesn't appear to be a ram issue.

I've searched the forums for similar problems and haven't found anything....

Any thoughts or remarks would be appreciated.
