Aperture's Fast Library Switching Bug

There is a bug in Aperture related to switching libraries, which affects the APIs used by AE. If you use Aperture's fast library switching (i.e. The menu item File->Switch to Library) and then use AE with odd results you may be affected.

The bug is that data retrieved using Aperture APIs become stale and/or corrupted after the fast library switch. The only safe way to switch libraries is to shut down Aperture and restart it with the new library.

One manifestation of this bug is that AE creates the target folders, but no images are in any of the folders. If you think you may have been affected by this bug, shut down AE, then Aperture. Restart Aperture with your desired library. Then give AE another try.
