We had the same problem. Our G3, and I suspect yours too, is running OS8.1.
We solved the problem by adding RAM and turning off virtual memory. Hasn't
happened at all since then.

The alternative is to take the OS to 8.0. this is somewhat complicated, but
I got instructions from ABI for doing it if you prefer to go that route.
