Lightroom 4.0 Bug: Updating catalog for plugin metadata hangs

I have a plugin with several dozen metadata items.

Lightroom consumed all memory (then the system hung of course) when attempting to update the catalog for plugin metadata.

If I comment all metadata items out of the metadata provider module except a few, then the catalog update would complete, although it still consumed way more memory than it should (the better part of 8G).

Then I could uncomment a few more, and it would be able to update the catalog again, and so forth.

But if I uncommented too many, it would consume too much memory and hang...

So, I succeeded in getting the catalog updated for my plugin's metadata in this fashion, but of course I can't expect my users to do the same...
