the error means the re-projection to the new coordinate system is failing. What is your source CRS and what CRS are you trying to export? – spatialthoughts Jul 11 '12 at 2:24

The layer's CRS settings are wrong. 5731.78, 29676.2 cannot be valid latitude/longitude values. That's why the transformation fails.

To fix this: Go to layer properties and correct the CRS setting there.
