Error when importing a Nessus NBE file

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on what may be happening

I am currently running Framework Version: 3.4.0-dev and Nessus 4.2.2, and
when I try to import an NBE file from Nessus into Metasploit I receive the
following error:

msf > db_import_nessus_nbe /opt/pentest/pentest_20100507/
[-] Error while running command db_import_nessus_nbe: Deprecated data column
for vuln, use .info instead

Call stack:
/opt/metasploit3/msf3/lib/msf/core/db.rb:631:in `report_vuln'

/opt/metasploit3/msf3/msfconsole:97:in `<main>'

I have a couple of versions of Metaploit around, specifically one that was
updated today and one that has not been updated in about 1 month.
Interestingly, the error only occurs in the one that was updated today.  Any
suggestions on what could be done in the interim until this is resolved?
