I would suggest editing your question so that is specifically addresses what you are hoping to accomplish with this data. Maybe responses will give you a sense of how to handle similar issues in the future.

But your output isn't packed and ByteCount[ts] verifies the size. If you apply Developer`ToPackedArray@ts it will consume far less memory.

It "gags" because you have about 2GB of results and are trying to render them in the front end. I suppose I don't see how you hope to gain anything by seeing the full output. Try a small problem and verify that it works. Look at a subset of individual results. Check that the dimensions are what you expect etc..

@Yves That would be yet more fun.. at least when animated we see this to some extent based on their relative laziness :)

@rcollyer they weren't doing anything incorrectly but they requested a solution that only used MousePosition a single time.

comment Locators and Table within a Manipulate are not behaving
I'm glad you figure this out, it was driving me crazy :) I'm keen to hear an explanation for why this worked as well. I had tracked the problem down to theta2 in the Table but I couldn't seem to fix it.

You should file that as a suggestion to WRI if you haven't already.

Yes, that is what I was referring to. I had a vague idea about using command line input in other places, I didn't realize it worked here as well. Potentially a very powerful idea.
