This is odd and normally should not happen -- unless there is a huge
waste of resources somewhere.

* How many CPU cores do you have?
* How many GB memory do you have?

Does this it also happen with existing library theories? E.g. from
$ISABELLE_HOME/src/HOL/Library/Library.thy or
$ISABELLE_HOME/src/HOL/Analysis/Analysis.thy (which is rather big).

The latter might require more Java resources. For Isabelle2017 on
Windows 64, you can edit $ISABELLE_HOME/Isabelle2017.l4j.ini and grant
more heap space, e.g. replace "-Xmx2560m" by "-Xmx4096m". Restart the
Isabelle application afterwards: Isabelle/jEdit has a Java heap
indicator in the right-bottom corner.

You can also try as
an early preview of Isabelle2018 -- it has updated versions of Poly/ML
and Java 8, which could make a difference.

Unfortunately, Sledgehammer and some other tools will not work in this
snapshot: Jasmin Blanchette still needs to update various components to
