Compatibility or parsing problems have been noted with shapefiles made or exported from Arc 9.x, resulting in a "xxxxxxx.shp is not a valid or recognized data source" error in qGis 1.0.x. The shapefiles work in Arc, so this may be easily solved by allowing for some error tolerance in the OGR library? Example shapefiles are attached.
