[chirp_users] Still having trouble exporting channels from D72

back in June I reported issues exporting memories from my D72. I never 
got it to work correctly so shelved CHIRP for later. Well, later is now. 
I got an F6A and would like to put the same channel list on it as my D72 
has. Kenwood in their wisdom writes different control software for each 
radio so I was hoping CHIRP can help. I downloaded the latest released 
verion (CHIRP 0.2.3). It downloaded the memories from my D72 pretty 
quickly. Since I can't shove these downloaded memories straight into the 
F6A (upload to radio is greyed out) I figured I need to export and then 
import first. Problem is that export never finishes. It just sits there, 
no file is getting generated. This is with both the radio connected and 
not connected. It shows the 'preparing memory list' dialog, the progress 
bar moves and then stalls about 3/4 of the way there. I can exit the 
dialog but no file is generated. I've let CHIRP sit there for about 5 
minutes which I think should be enough to re-load all the memories from 
the radio. Disconnecting the radio before export makes no difference.

Can I please just export the contents of what is shown in the GUI?
