Lightroom CC is frequently unresponsive

In the latest versions of Lightroom (5 and CC) I have had several cases of the process hanging, becoming totally unresponsive. This has happened on two different MacBook Pro 2013 models (SSD,16GB RAM). When it happens I need to manually force kill the process.

I have no consistent way of reproducing the issue, it has happened on several different occasions, from importing pictures, to going through a recently imported collection and giving the pictures names. Usually this means I end up losing some recent work, leaving the database in an inconsistent state (I get warned on starting LR again).

I know as a software developer that this is very little info to go by, and so I would like to be able to provide more information, but I am unsure how you prefer to receive this. Do some kind of process dump when it happens, strace (or similar) on startup, or send you some kind of logging seems like probable reasons.
