Yea, Its a bug where the game either isn't optimized properly for OSX or something is causing a performance cripple on the OSX system.
I'm going to be installing windows 7 in bootcamp while the maintenance finishes and will just transfer my diablo install file over and install on bootcamp until a fix is made for OSX.

i have same machine and it runs fine for me too. but there is something wrong with how it runs in certain macbook pro configurations. definitely seems like a nvidia thing too, i don't think i read too many AMD/ATI complaints. makes me wonder.
Boot camp is always an option. Even i havea windows 7 partition i use from time to time, windows just does some things better, gaming tends to be one of them, do to apples complete lack of interest in providing better driver and opengl support. Whether the D3 issues are an apple issue or blizz one remains to be proven either way. Far as i've seen, most desktop machins run D3 just fine on mac os x, it's mainly a macbook pro problem, any desktop that has been acting up usually had some other underlying cause, like not having latest updates, or needing to reboot (ie sleep bug in lion), etc.
Only the blue's really know for sure. I'm sure they are following the forum threads and collecting data.
I can confirm there are issues on more than just MBPs, a lot of mac users with newer (2011 and newer) mac systems seem to all be having issues (Mac Mini, iMac, MBPs). A lot of people are also finding that if they just install windows in bootcamp and run diablo3 there, the performance is much much better.
a majority of the issues seem to come down to MacBook Pros and the nvidia 9400m, however, i think the issue goes much deeper than just that as I do not have a MBP, I have a MacMini with the HD 3000 card, and others with ATI cards are running into severe performance issues as well.
