Saving Illustrator 2021 files insanely slow, AIRobin maxes out processor

I've noticed a weird problem when I save files in Illustrator 2021 on my Mac, if they're over about 10MB in size.  The save progress gets to the point where the temp file says it's 9.8MB, and then the "Saving XX%" stalls at whatever percent it was at.  AIRobin then maxes out the CPU, and then the save progress will eventually move up a few percentage points at a time, until it finally finishes saving and AIRobin goes idle.

The big issue (besides taking 15-20 minutes to save a file to an internal SSD, which used to be instantaneous, or nearly so, with AI 2020) is that if the file's big enough, the i9 in my MacBook Pro gets pretty freakin' hot after running maxed out for 15+ minutes.

Anyone else experiencing similar issues?
