The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
Login to P6 Pro:
- Create a new Project.
- Add 2 Activities.
- Ensure the Activities are assigned to a Global Calendar.

- Assign the Project Calendar as the Project default (Defaults tab of the Project settings).
- Export to MSP 2013 XML.
- Attempt to open with MSP 2013.
- Error message seen (UID value varies).
