Need some help guys. I loaded an old wallet into my client and tried to send some coins to a new address. I got the following error message

Code:
A fatal error occurred. Bitcoin can no longer continue safely and will quit.

EXCEPTION: St13runtime_error
CWallet::GenerateNewKey() :AddKey failed
C:\Program Files (X86)\Bitcoin\bitcoin-qt.exe in Runaway exception

I'm running version 0.8. The old wallet was last opened in summer 2012 in probably 0.6.

Thanks

A little bit of digging shows the -30974 error has happened to other people too. The advice given was to use pywallet to extract the keys but there was never a follow up saying it worked.

Has anyone recovered from this error using pywallet?
