I really wanted to post this as a note on the bug tracker system but
was not able to figure out how to add a note-- so I decided to post
this here with the thought in mind that it may help others who may have
run across this same problem.
This involved two of my family tree dbs -- My other three trees did not have this problem.I submitted a bug report on this -- here:http://www.gramps-project.org/bugs/view.php?id=4135
Here's the issue:
When exporting to xml the process reached 85% then came up with a dialog box reporting an error.
then I tried to run the repair tool and it also produced an error.
I found a large number of empty notes where the id was "none". I deleted these and then was
able to run the repair tool successfully.
I found a "person" starting with a "comma" (,)-- (no given name and
surname "Unknown" --the comma apparently a typo). After deleting this
"person", the export went off without a hitch. So apparently this problem is solved.
