I had the same problem under linux,, when trying to export 
PDFs, only when color calibration was enabled (using an icc color profile.)
I switched to 1.3.7 ('NG' on ubuntu) and it solved the problem.
Just be aware that files saved under a newer version won't be backwars 
However, you can install both versions, continue working under, 
and only open the file under a newer version to generate your PDFs.
