Who hasn't? Another means to detect a corrupted names card or note is to
export it all to e.g. a text file and then look into the error log. I
had things like binary crap appended somewhere in the street line or
town. Also a ^2 in a note of a names card (e.g. m^2 area of an
appartement) will kill your names file. Other candidates are large
greyscale pictures or animated GIF's in Notes, coming via copy and paste
from LunaSuite Ranger.
