I've got the same problems from time to time when caching >2k footage or a lot of nodes. Have you tried to get DF more RAM using "preferences">"globals...">"memory">"cache limits..." ? It helped me in some cases.

I've had other cases where I had to work with footage like 6500x3500 - impossible to cache on a 2GB RAM machine as soon I had some additional tools in the flow. I solved this using external proxy footage on my loaders. Of course I had to invest a little effort to make the proxies. I used xnview for this, it's a pretty quick way.
