Importing reference crashes my scene!

Just a quick one, but I feel as though someone out there is probably going to have a similar problem.

Let's say you have 2 animated 'things' in a scene, for example: a sword and a character.
Let's also say both of these things are referenced.
Let's ALSO say that the sword has a constraint coming from the characters hand.
Let's finally say you want to import the reference at some point.

Nooooope. Crash crash crash crash crash crash.

I didn't know why I was getting this issue for a while, but it turns out that the thing that was causing it was the mixing of constraints between two referenced objects. Best to bake out the keys you need and delete the constraint before importing!
