Is there a clash in macro-names ?

Or is the problem that curves eat up too much memory ?
In that case there are 2 solutions:

 1.  use a PostScript back-end.
     and use the [thicker] modifier, or change the default thickness
     for lines, (or use a scale factor when you create diagrams)
 2.  use pdfLaTeX, with a very small paper-size.
     Show your slides as PDFs with Acrobat Reader, in Full-Screen mode
     or otherwise scaled to fit.

See:   http://www-texdev.ics.mq.edu.au/CalTeX3/examples/Pappus.pdf
for an example of this latter technique.

Hope this helps,
