Game Crashes When Elf Returns to Gremlin's House.

I've been enjoying this game, but it crashes in the thrid or fourth scene - where the elf first returns to the Gremlin's house, just after the gnome gets launched in his granddad's rocket.

The crash occurs when the elf enters the Gremlin's house. You can pick up and manipulate objects outside, but when you enter the house, you get a brief view of the interior and then POOF!

I'm using the Steam version.
