I am currently reivsing my listings with new images in accordance with eBay's upcoming policy.  Every time I edit an item and synchronize, it throws the above error.  But if I then clear pending revisions and then edit again, I don't get an error the second time.


The problem is I can't edit and resync every item TWICE it would take months.  I need a blanket fix for this issue.  I'm not modifying *any* shipping data so there's no reason it should be throwing this error at all.  It's obviously incorrectly adding something on the first edit, then deleting it.  But what??

Just a follow-up: This seems to only happen if I edit and sync multiple items at a time, like 5 or more.  If I do it one at a time it doesn't throw the error.  I have literally edited 10 items, had 5 throw the error, clear the error on all 5, re-edit those 5, had it throw the same error AGAIN on 1 item, clear it, re-edit, and it goes through.  This seems to be an application bug not actual errors.
