What I do:
Using 1.5.0 I create the initial document with
lots of extra pages and automatic linking of
text frames. 1.4.5 bogs down with multipage
documents. Then I can at the end of the process
delete the excess pages. 

This is for future reference. For the existing
situation you need to follow Peter's advice
given above.
