chances are that you are using some character in the name of a track or
region that is confusing poor libxml. we have attempted to tell libxml
to expect UTF8 encoded text which should cover most languages that the
program is likely to encounter. apparently this attempt is not
catching every case, or you have some pathological case that the libxml
UTF8 handling code cannot deal with.

for export, i would expect the only real variable would be the name of
the file. what name were you using?
