LightRoom 5 crashes consistently upon importing GPS track (.gpx)

LR5 used to work to import GPX files. But now it crashes consistently on me and I can rarely import anything without it crashing. I am using LR5.3 on Mavericks.

1. Go into Map module.
2. Go to 'Load Tracklog'
3. Choose a GPX file. My files are .gpx files with 1000 - 10,000 points, made with MotionX on iOS7. They are located on a local volume.
4. LR5 briefly displays an empty dialog box. Then it crashes entirely. Sometimes the dialog box will have a thermometer and text ('4 tracks containing 3124 data points', etc.) -- and if it gets this far, it'll continue without crashing.

I've verified that the GPX files are OK -- they read into (OSX) and GPX Editor (Windows) just fine.

I have posted an example track (exported from GPX Editor) at

and a crashlog at

Any suggestions?
