Try exporting to CSV and check the that the records do not have any 
embeded <CR> or <LF> chars. One simple way to do this is to compare the 
record count of the shp file to the line count of the CSV file. Try 
importing the CSV file into EXCEL  or Libreoffice and see if it reports 
a problem. This may give you a better idea of what the problem is.
