Thanks to Caleb for a pretty quick solution (2nd response listed below). We changed save_drawing_picture_file from "yes" to "no" and the assembly drawing saves and doesn't crash Pro/E. It's a short term solution to keep us moving on the project. But it's not a long term solution because our company is trying to use ProductView (which requires the embedded drawing picture file). I imagine the root cause is related to the size/complexity of the assembly drawing (lots of complicated cross sections). I plan on submitting this issue to PTC for a long term solution.
My original question and responses are listed below. As a side note, Caleb sent me a solution before I stopped receiving all the annoying "out of office" emails.
Thanks again for your help,
