Does anyone know why I keep getting this error when try to open an existing xml scanned file?

error loading file
....... no element found

The scan looks like it finished just fine and some files up to 20 MB.

I just went to the Zenmap-GUI and Open Scan, and browse to the *.xml file and that is when I get that error.

I just reran the program again and monitored the scan by hitting the 'enter' keys.  That seemed to help.
