Symptoms

When exporting from P6 to Microsoft Project (MSP) XML 2013 file type that contains a calendar name greater than 50 characters, the MSP XML file when opened in MSP 2013 will crash the application with the error "An unhandled win32 exception occurred in winproj.exe [13440]".
However, the same P6 exported MSP XML 2013 file (with calendar name(s) greater than 50 characters) opens fine in MSP 2010 or MSP 2007.
