Make sure you use the version that I posted about an hour ago.  It fixes a stupid memory leak that could cause memory usage to balloon (sorry).  I've no idea why a .dat file would be looked at by my importers.  Do you have BibDesk on your system, by any chance?  Maybe I should update the importer to claim the .bib UTI.
