Red Herring! It wasn't related to the upgrade at all.
I had my Droid smart phone plugged into a USB cable to charge it. Lightroom and/or Windows didn't seem to like trying to access that drive as a potential import source. When I unplugged the phone, the Import module began working correctly again.
Same problem. I unplugged my Android phone until the import was complete, and everything worked fine. Never had this happen before. I think it might be related to the upgrade. In any case, it is a bug that needs to be fixed.
For others searching for a solution to this problem:
If Lightroom crashes when initiating an import, check to see if your phone is connected to your computer. If so, unplug it until the import is complete.

What the, same here. I was starting a Google search expecting to find an issue with certain card readers. But no, it's my phone.
