Lightroom 4.1 continually crashes on import/export of catalogs

I have images that I export as a catalog from my notebook and external drive to my desktop . Did this all the time before the release candidate 4.1 without a hint of problems.

With 4.1, it crashes 90% of the time....average export/import of a catalog I am running is about 3000 images.  What is particularly wierd is that it crashes on multiples of 500.  Normally first crash is at 500, the next at 1000 or 1500 and so forth.  any thoughts?

    Do you export with negatives or/and previews?

    Just made a test import and export of a 23K catalog - no crashes on Win7 with 4.1RC.


    Crashes on multiples of 500 suggest that it might happen at database commits. Try optmizing your target catalog.
