this was a bug present since 2005, probably this comes up because we improved rebuild sec indexec and reference tables tools.

Anyway, this is fixed now in SVN, if possible please test on your system. Do this as follows:

0/open a terminal (Terminal or Konsole)

1/take a backup copy of the file in error:

sudo cp /usr/share/gramps/plugins/ /usr/share/gramps/plugins/

2/get the new version: go here:
and click the download button to obtain the file, store it on eg your Desktop.

3/overwrite the file on disk with the new file:

sudo mv ~/Desktop/ /usr/share/gramps/plugins/

4/test if the tool now works in GRAMPS.

Note that you can do the above also from a file browser that is started with root priviliges.
