iPhoto import crash

This occurred mid-way through a photo import (happening at the same time as a sync operation via iTunes).  Result was no photos imported (but they were all still on the phone, so nothing lost). The phone disappeared from iPhoto, but was still present in iTunes.

Console says:

4/10/12 12:18:08.983 AM com.apple.launchd.peruser.501: ([0x0-0x3e13e1].com.apple.
PTPCamera[8973]) Job appears to have crashed: Illegal instruction: 4

Thought I’d post here in case anyone else has run into this issue.
