Thank you, Mattias, for showing me this workaround!

Success! Eventually.

The problem seems to have been the fact that there were some cues
(possibly relevant: more than one), so there were measures where there
were more than one voice. Once I was able to delete the cues, I was
able to export to .ly without crashing MuseScore. Exporting to .xml at
this point, to test with musicxml2ly, did not produce a
lilypond-compatible .xml file.
