The issue I see is the issue in another thread at this time. Gramps tends to choke and puke if there's a version disconnect. Traditionally Gramps databases are not terribly portable.

The old deprecated .grdb format was not portable, the current version can actually be copied around (try it, easy to verify, do make a backup first), but one cannot open a database touched by a more recent database version by a later database version. I don't mind this, as the OS (and hence database version) on all my computers is the same anyway.
