Riak 0.11.0 hanging on OSX 10.6

I'm having a bit of a problem with Riak.  When I keep my new documents to about 10 per second, Riak works fine.  But as I increase my speed to about 100 docs per second, Riak gets dramatically slow.  After a while, the beam process takes 100% of my CPU and no longer responds to ping/stop or any other command from the bin folder.  I end up sending kill TERM to stop the process.  

If I restart Riak, the bitcask backend seems to be limited to about 1-2 document stores per second, but read seems fairly responsive still.  I'd appreciate any thoughts or troubleshooting tips you may have.  It's an in-development database with demo data, so I can run any experiments you'd like to see.

Thanks,
-Shane
