Hi Kip,

I've not yet arrived at that point - I'm just going through your file, writing
down my observations, and trying to fix stuff as I progress.
The patch that I attached is not essential to the diagram export.

As written in comment #5,

I'm afraid this step is manual work. Apparently some older Umbrello version has
mangled a few objects into the "undef" datatype.
Unfortunately Umbrello does not have a feature like "show usages" (of a given
object - the old Rational Rose had this btw) and so I believe sticking to the
XMI file is the only way to fix these references.

Ah, that might explain why I have problems reconstructing what went wrong while
looking at the current trunk code.
