I didn't think that Plone would consider 1.2.8 there until I used the 
quickinstaller. Maybe your right though and it doesn't hurt to try.

I can try that too, although I was under the impression that orphaned 
objects could kill a migration and would need to be removed by hand.
Maybe I can export my Collector Folder to .zexp, remove PloneCollectorNG.
Install Newer PloneCollectorNG and import the folder into the upgraded site.

What debugger, I'm all ears... I thought using runzope was in debug 
mode, but the terminal didn't spit out anything useful.
Could you point me to good option on Ubuntu(debian based).
