Hi Doug,

Are you by any chance building collections containing PDF files? There is a
problem with the handling of certain PDF files which causes two strange
characters to be added into the Title metadata extracted from these files.
This means the doc.xml files fail to parse correctly, and during building you
get the error you report.

There is a simple patch to this problem, so if this sounds like you, let me
know and I'll send it to you and the list.

All the best,
