Escort Dr. Li into Citadel freeze glitch -- any hope of recovery?

Hey everyone, I did some searching and have yet to find any answers on this glitch yet, so I'm hoping someone out there has encountered it and found a work-around.

Okay, I got Dr. Li and most of her team out of the Taft Tunnels. She got on the intercom and spoke to Lyons, and the gate was raised (all this amid the Citadel guards turning on me for some unknown reason). I went in, got the power armor training, looked around a bit, and left. It was elsewhere in the wastelands that I noticed I still had to "Escort Dr. Li into the Citadel." So back to the Citadel I went, entered the main doors, and got no more than about 5 feet before my character holstered his weapon and froze. I couldn't do anything except look around -- no Pip-Boy, no bringing back my weapon, nothing. I had to do a reboot. Tried again, and the same thing happened.

I wondered if it was because Dr. Li was nowhere to be found, so I went back into the Taft Tunnels. No Dr. Li. Upon exiting the tunnels, though, she and her companions were there. They were heading to the Citadel, so I went along. They go through the door, but when I try to follow them, I freeze -- same place. No matter what I've tried, I freeze up just a few feet into the Citadel.

I cleared the cache and re-downloaded the update. No luck. I went back to a 5th save, as far as I could go, but again, no luck. Bethesda Support was of little help, essentially telling me that my "save files are corrupt."

I don't have the time nor the inclination to start another game after all the time I've invested so far. My question is, has anyone encountered this glitch, and has anyone found any sort of work-around or fix?

Thanks everyone!
Dave

If you can't find a solution there, then I guess you'll have to restart.
