yes i have tried that but doesnt seem to work.
i can export 1 contact and i also succeeded in
exporting a group of 10 but when i tried to do
it with the next 10 nothing........same thing after a restart
tho then i couldnt export the first group (which i had erased).
when i try exporting all of the contacts i wait a long time after
pressing save (+15 minutes) but no success) . i searched for
a reported bug on this but couldnt find one.

Similar Issue here.
Im a sys admin for many different clients. One of my clients claims to have a bug. When trying to export all of his 81 contacts Dexter hangs and closes with no error output. Im investigating this issue to submit a bug or solve it by myself if i can (and of course comment here if i find a solution) but i havent been able to reproduce the bug. I just added 8000 contacts, exported them, deleted them, added again, exported and cant find any problem. Im on vacation now but in a few weeks i'll pay a visit to my client to see if i can get any logs of this situation.

I Repeat: He [CLAIMS] can export contacts by one, by two, ... by five, but when selecting all of his contacts(81) Dexter closes with no error log. This has been reported by one client in 4 different machines all running Ubuntu 11.04.
