Turns out it was ClipFix =/

Equalizer works great, but ClipFix is the one I really wanted, so that's a bummer. Are there any general tips/tricks for a crashing effect?

How long is the track that you are trying to process?

There was a problem with ClipFix that caused it to fail on 'long' tracks. The problem would occur in tracks that are about 30 minutes or more in length.
The problem has been fixed in the next release of Audacity.

I still think you should name the Equalization curve you're using in the chain. The shape of the "untitled" curve will change if you use the Equalization effect outside of the chain and make any changes to the curve / sliders.
