I'd like to uninstall the module hr_timesheet_invoice, but get this error when trying to open the page in Settings - Installed modules:

You must delete "========================================================"  from openerp.py

The error is somewhere in the module description...

When I made a change in File "/opt/odoo/testing/odoo/openerp/addons/base/module/module.py" (line 186, in _get_desc) I didn't get the error anymore.


I changed 

output = publish_string(source=module.description or '', settings_overrides=overrides, writer=MyWriter())


output = publish_string(source='', settings_overrides=overrides, writer=MyWriter())
