LR5 crashes regularlyafter periods of inactivity

I sometimes leave LR open overnight. Since upgrading to LR5, pretty much every time I do this when I restore the window next day LR crashes immediately with "Lightroom has stopped functioning".

This seems to be different from the other reported crash,which required some specific editing action.

I can tell it's going to crash before restoring the window because the taskbar Aero preview (when you mouse over the taskbar icon) is just a small thin gray vertical bar instead of a mini-LR window. Next time it happens I'll get a screenshot.

There should be a crash log available through the OS tools and settings panels. See if you can get that.
