[OS X TeX] Improper alphabetic constant

$\xrightarrow{5}$ and \boldsymbol{$5$} both compile but \boldsymbol{$\xrightarrow{5}$} does not.

The error is:

2.tex:1309: Improper alphabetic constant.
<to be read again> 
                   \reserved at d 
l.1309 \boldsymbol{$\xrightarrow{5}$}

Any way around it?
