   Hello list,

after adding some packages to my ros install (ubuntu 12.04 (64bit)) I cannot
do catkin_make anymore, even with an empty workspace.
See the error below.
  (The (older) file indeed contains invalid XML)
I saw something about this in ROS Answers from yesterday, but about a different file,
What to do?

   Thanks in advance,
