I have complained about this before.
For a library that I have no control over, but it contains useful stuff
and I like to be able to browse it, this error just makes gnetlist

$ gnetlist -g PCB -o pwr_12_9V.sch
`xorn-netlist' raised an uncaught exception.
This is an error.  Please report it to bug-xorn AT hedmen DOT org

Traceback (most recent call last):

If you want to complain, use a warning instead or just remove the 
offending symbol names from the scanning list.
