I've narrowed the problem down to one long marriage place name (66
characters, including spaces). If I remove this place name, the problem goes
away.

[I found the problem by creating the report for successive generations. Then
when I found which generation caused the problem, I narrowed it down to the
family by running the report for each family.

When I looked at the PDF output for this family, I saw that the marriage
place was corrupted.]

Conclusion: Family Descendant Tree add-on can't handle long marriage place
names.

Please post a bug ticket for this on the bug tracker.
Normal solution to those kind of problems is to ellipsize long names (long name...) or to word wrap on a fixed length.

It's still an excellent add-on though, in my opinion.
