Lightroom: GPS coordinates read incorrectly

LR CC 2015.2.1 reads the longitude incorrectly for this photo:

The Metadata panel shows the coordinates as:

37°29'57" N 55°24'57" E

whereas they are actually:

37°29'57" N 126°59'55" E

The EXIF representation of the GPSLongitude is 3 unsigned rationals:

126/1 599241/10000 0/1

which represents 126°59.924', or 126°59'55.44". But LR is reading that incorrectly as 55°24'57".

You can work around this bug by using Exiftool to rewrite the latitude and longitude:

exiftool "-gpslatitude<gpslatitude" "-gpslongitude<gpslongitude" TEST.tif

Here's the portion of the exiftool -htmldump showing the hex representation of the GPSLongitude field:
