My only LR 2 catalog has become corrupt after a recent upload. Upon attempting a "repair" it says the catalog cannot be repaired at this time and to report the problem to adobe. I can't find where or how to report it and am at a loss for how to fix this. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

I really should have just had them put my name in that dialog. :o) Some people find my gmail.com e-mail address when Googling around from various forum threads like this one: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/427677

Thankfully, I hear from almost zero people with LR3, but I do still repair catalogs for any folks using LR2 that experience corruption (mostly on the Mac).
