Hi Josh,
Sorry to hear you are crashing in Sierra too. I've certainly not had that.
Try the XDCAM Browser way - you can get it from the Sony website.
1 Use the browser to navigate to either a camera card or a HD copy.
2 Right click on one or more thumbnails and select the 2nd option "Import into Final Cut Pro"
3 Select Execute on the next dialogue and the default is to create a folder in you Movies folder
4 Once that's done it gives you the option to import into a Library and will launch FCP if it's not already open.
5 You could either quit FCP, eject SxS card, launch FCP then import from the new Movies folder file or just try to eject the card before FCP finishes launching. (assuming is still crashes)

The crucial difference is that this method re-wraps the file into a regular MPEG2 MOV and doesn't create the BPAV structure so it should import fine.
