Turn that off, open the data file again, and examine your scheduled transactions for obvious errors. There might be something listed in the gnucash.trace file that could guide you, too. You shouldn't have to recreate all your SX's, but you'll have to look for the one or two that are choking the new version.
I didn't have much time to work on this tonight, but I did look at the trace file. Two questions:
1) The trace file is absolutely huge. It looks like it has entries for every account and transaction. Is that expected?
2) If my problem is an corrupt scheduled transaction, what is the signature I should look for in the trace file?
