Sure this points directly to a problem which is machine related. Check the paging file size on your machine. What is the machine configuration that you are using ? Instead of using delays and reverting to using single (or few) application instances running you better zero in upon the original problem.
One thing mentioned above caught my attention. In case of less free memory shutting down all other applications and then using SilkTest is surely an option but it should not be the case. I've used SilkTest 5.0.3 extensively and had never had problems with using multiple applications. The agent was also quite satisfactory in performance. Also I am (was ) unaware of SilkTest 5.0.3 agent's speed drawbacks.
OK I'll pipe in... I gave this solution in a similar thread a few weeks ago. It has worked most of the time in the past with slow or hanging agents in SilkTest
Try this. In NT run regedit and set the memory cache key "LargeSytemCache" to 1.
I can't give the exact location in the reg, but it is in the current controll set somewhere. I usually do a search for LargeSystemCache and find it no problem. This has always greatly increased Silktest Performance in WindowsNT helps a little in Win2K but seems to have little effect in XP.
The problem you are having is system related in conjunction with Silktest.
Looked again, The key is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\ControlSet001\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache
