 Are you using Safari or Konqueror as your browser? 

 I saw this error once after using Konqueror to edit the UI, and the only way 
I could fix it was to replace products/mv_metadata.asc with a clean copy from 
the original foundation catalog. (You'll have to then delete 
mv_metadata.gdbm, too). 

 The problem didn't come back after I made the same UI edit with Internet
