Show Parent Folder Bug in LR 4.1 RC

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Dupe folders in Lightroom catalog, throws internal error

I have installed LR 4.1 RC and converted my PSE 10 catalog of ~37k images & videos. The import seemed to go well keeping the keyword tags and captions (I checked only a small a random sample so far). 99% of my images are in a specific folder C:\Our Files\Pictures

In the Library, I rightclick on a folder and select Show Parent Folder, I get the following error:

An internal error has occurred: Database "c:\Users\Daddy\Pictures\Lightroom\Lightroom\Lightroom 4 Catalog.Iract": columns rootFolder,pathFromRoot are not unique

Statement: UPDATE AgLibreryFolder SET rootFolder = ? WHERE id_local = ?;

The images are in the following folder:
C:\Our Files\Pictures

However, IT WORKS when I do the very same thing to a folder in:
c:\Users\Daddy\Documents\Adobe\Premiere Elements 4.0\
This folder and others like it are the default folder that Premiere Elements uses for it’s videos.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

PS: I am new to LR but PSE is no longer able to safely handle a large catalog so I am attempting to move to LR.

I'd post here and in the user to user forum.

First thing I'd do is backup the catalog, export the entire catalog as a catalog, move the current catalog aside and move the exported one into its place and see if that fixes it.
