How can we improve Adobe InDesign SDK

InDesign crashes when converting a table

In the attached document, when I (try to) convert the tabbed text to a table, InDesign crashes.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open the document from the attached zip file.
2. Select the text frame.
3. Run the following one-line script:

app.selection[0].parentStory.texts[0].convertToTable ('\t', '\r');

Expected result: a table.
Actual result: InDesign crashes.

Note: the crash does not happen when the tabbed text is converted manually:

1. Select all the text
2. Table > Convert Text to Table
