LR5 Tether disconnect problems

I'm having a problem with LR5 repeatedly disconnecting the tethered connection at random time intervals. My camera is a 1DS MKIII shooting to a Macbook Air, Mac OS 10.8.4. Auto power off is set to OFF on the camera, so that is definitely not the issue.

Camera, cable, etc. works flawlessly with LR4. I've trashed LR5 preferences and restarted. I've tried alternative USB cables. I've changed USB ports. This issue first started with the LR5 beta. I had assumed it was a beta issue but it's behaving exactly the same now that I've upgraded to the final release version of LR5.

Once I restart tethering, the camera is recognized quickly but won't maintain the connection through a full day of production shooting. LR5 loses the connection several during an 8 hour day of shooting.

I notice that when I change Shot Name in the Initial Shot Name Dialog Box the camera will disconnect while the dialog is open and then most often reconnect when dialog is closed (although occasionally it will disconnect after the dialog closes).
