I have the same thing. It is really catastrophic as I use this professionally and cannot afford these crashes. It looks like it is losing the thread when it makes automatic backups for versions. PLEASE can we find a way of turning the autosave off at least while making presentations.

I found a way around this problem by ditching the presentation and starting from scratch. I copied the slides without video and remade de slides with video's. This seemed to solve the problem but is more a workaround than a solution.

In addition to the above message I get " The movie file '---' cannot be found. Without this file, the movie cannot play properly."
Keynote is way overdue for an upgrade!

Yeah, It's been happening to me too (yes, i know, this doesn't help) but it seems to get worse as I work with Keynote... I'm going to restart my computer and see if it reduces the incidents. Very annoying though- hopefully the Keynote team is still alive and listening.

This workaround works for me.
The length of delay is directly related to the size of the presentation. As this happens when you change or move something it is best to resist the temptation to work on large presentations. Instead open a new one and drag the slides you need to change on to that for maintenance. Create new slides on the "working" presentation too. Then the autosaves are really fast while you work. When you are done, click to save the large programme (to avoid an autsave during the transfer) then drag the slides back to replace the originals.
I would still prefer a button to control the autosave but apparently we cannot be trusted to control anything..

same problem. using 10.7.5 is the only change I have made. Never had this issue before 10.7.5...
workaround is not such a terrific option for me working with 400_MB presentations...

I am also seeing this bug and often work on 400mb+ presentations that use larger screen sizes and have lots of video assets for work. On large files I find that autosave is not ideal, and would also like a way to turn it off. The computer that was seeing the issue was running 10.7.5. It was just updated to 10.8.2 so I am keeping my fingers crossed that it works better now. Time will tell.
I also really hope that Apple gives us a real refresh on Keynote on the Mac. As old as it is, it still ahead of Powerpoint. But it wont stay that way forever standing still and nobody else has a better alternative that is as fast and flexible to work with. They are squandering somthing special by letting it gather dust.
