FileZilla Error message on start

After about version 3 I keep getting this error message when I start FileZilla Portable:
Error loading xml file
The file 'E:\PORTABLES\Portable Filezilla\Data\settings\queue.xml' could not be loaded.
Start-end tags mismatch at offset 87.
The queue could not be saved.

When I click OK, Filezilla starts normally and works like a dream - like it's always have done - so it's no big deal really.

When I rename the file queue.xml to queue.eksemmell, FileZilla Portable starts normally with no error message.

Any clues as to what this may be?

It might have gotten corrupted. Try opening the file and placing this in it:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<FileZilla3 />

Be sure to save it as UTF-8. Also be sure to scan your drive for errors to be safe.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Queue.xml is not actively

Queue.xml is not actively used anymore since several versions. FileZilla uses queue.sqlite3 now. If the XML exists FileZilla attempts to convert it to the new database format.

So a corrupt queue.xml that contains no data can simply be deleted.
