Question No luck with catalog

Running 0.8.64.
Tried the new catalog feature. It fails with the following error:

Generate catalog
Python function terminated unexpectedly
u'short_name' (Error Code: 1)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 132, in main
File "", line 109, in run_entry_point
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\ipc\", line 192, in main
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\convert\", line 68, in gui_catalog
File "site-packages\calibre\library\catalogs\", line 178, in run
KeyError: u'short_name'

I initially tried setting exclusions and prefixes.
I ended up deleting every rule in the Excluded books section and all the rules in the Prefixes section. All that's left is:
Included sections:
  • all options are checked
Excluded genres:
  • default value remains: \[.+\]
Excluded books: empty
Prefixes: empty
Other options --I did not change these, they defaulted to:
  • Thumb width 1.00 in,
  • Extra note: DRMFree?
  • Merge with Comments: PersonalNotes
  • "Before" radio button selected
  • Separator is checked.

Got any suggestions on how to fix this? I love my catalog!
