Lightroom 4.1: Appcrash when dragging photos into collections

I've been going through my catalog of about 7,500 photos and dragging them into collections of people from the grid display (catching up on lazy import discipline!).
This goes fine for a while, then it does not show the photo being dragged into the collection & won't update the count and then LR goes non-reponsive with an appcrash.
I'm on the latest Lightroom (4.1), Windows 7 (up to date).

Where are the details of this "crash". Sounds like the process is CPU or memory bound.

Use the Windows 7 reliability applet to find and share the "crash", if it exists.

Hi John
Thanks for the response.
Of course, I'm now unable to get the crash happening. rats!
The symptom of being unable to drag the photo into the collection persists though.
Strangely, I am able to tag images to the quick collection though.
