Hi everyone,

Koha 18.11 on Ubuntu 16.04 (MariaDb)

I recently discovered that the Library of Congress has released their 2014
authorities as a free, open-access dataset in Marc8, xml, and Utf8 formats.
This is great! (

I am in the process of batch uploading the subject authority file into my
instance of Koha. I'm about half complete (or about 220,000 entries).

I noticed, however, that the file includes free-floating subdivisions,
which are part of the dataset as their own record as if they were main
headings. These have been uploaded as such into my system.

I get an "Internal Server Error" page if I attempt to click on the Details
button of any of these sub-divisions in the OPAC authority browse page. Not
a huge deal, but something that should be mentioned. E.g.,

I was wondering if this should be treated as a bug, and if anyone has done
something similar and is (or is not) getting the same error.

I reindexed zebra after uploading, but the error persists.

Thanks all,
