Glad you found it.  One of 2 patches have been applied to Qt, but the
one that would fix the bug isn't yet applied.  :(  I'm guessing the fix
will be in sometime after 4.6.1, possibly 4.7 (about the time everyone
with bad data has already fixed it manually :).

Oh, and another post with the error message is great to help for future
searchers find the fix, so thanks for posting the follow-up.
