.xml imports broken

After the most recent update, imports using the WordPress Importer appear to be broken. Specifically, I've seen this with post imports.

This happens on even a clean install with the default theme and no plugins activated.

The .xml files are well under 1mb. I tried on a fresh WP installation after the first set of failures. I then tried an export from a third site to make sure the issue wasn't with the site the initial export came from, and this second export also failed to import onto the fresh installation. I then tried to import these into a completely separate unused WP installation that was recently updated to the latest WP version, and those also failed.

It appears to import the first post before failing. This happens regardless of the import file, so it's not the same post and therefore not anything in a particular post causing the issue.

The import fails whether or not you try to import attachments, and it fails whether you try to create a new user or assign the posts to an existing user.

Error message:

"There has been a critical error on this website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions."

But no emails are sent to the admin email address.
