I am concerned that it seems something happened when I upgraded.  Gramps was
open with my main database when I applied the upgrade (I should learn to look
at what is in the list of packages before I hit "go"!)  I submitted this XML
to export bug report as gramps autmagically helps me to.  :-)

OEps, that looks indeed dangerous.
For safety, I would indeed restart from .gramps.
The crash is on export normally, but the bug actually happens on import and means XML is loaded wrongly into memory, so as soon as something is needed from memory in a non-direct way it crashes.
