I'm getting this bug as well.  I tried to follow the Feedback tips listed here:
http://orgmode.org/manual/Feedback.html

Here's my version information:
Aquamacs Version:
GNU Emacs 22.3.1 (i386-apple-darwin9.6.0, Carbon Version 1.6.0)
 of 2009-02-17 on plume.sr.unh.edu - Aquamacs Distribution 1.7

Org Version:
Its value is "6.28trans"

I used a bare-minimum .emacs file (I'm using the git version of org-mode)
;; Add org-mode to path
(setq load-path (cons "~/src/3rdparty/elisp/org-mode/lisp" load-path))
(setq load-path (cons "~/src/3rdparty/elisp/org-mode/contrib/lisp" load-path))

Then, I created a bare-bones org file, and saved it as "foo.org"

* Do Something

I turned on debug mode, and simply ran this command while
the cursor was in "foo.org":

M-x org-export-generic

When presented with the menu, I cab choose any of the "a"scii
"w"ikipedia, "d"emo, "h"tml, etc choices.
All choices gives the following error/stacktrace:
