I've continually encountered the following error message when attempting to export from iMovie '11 to Vimeo.

Unable to prepare project for publishing. The project could not be prepared for publishing because an error occurred. (OpWrErr: file already open with write permission

Turns out, it's a problem with Time Machine. The easiest way out is to disable Time Machine until after an export is complete.
