Error Publishing a map service in 10.1 SP1

We recently upgraded from 10.0 to 10.1 SP1.   We are running Windows 7 machines and our sde goedatabase are stored in SQL server 2008 on a windows 2008 server.

When trying to publish a map service from an mxd, ArcMap crashes during the process of creating the service definition file.  When the value changes from (0kb) to (3MB) during the .SD creation ArcMap shuts down.  

I've tried this from ArcInfo and ArcEditor isntalls, three different machines, with the database connected using windows authentication as well as SQL authentication.  I get the same result.

Has anyone encountered this before?  Is there a limit on the size the .SD file can be?   Is there a way to modify that limit?
