"Error when running query"

When I query the following:

http://api.census.gov/data/2010/acs5?key=MY_KEY_HERE&get=B19113_001E,NAME&for=tract:*&in=county:31,state:27

I receive the following:

"There was an error while running your query. We've logged the error and we'll correct it ASAP. Sorry for the inconvenience."

Any idea what's up with that? (I am working on my acs.R package -- see http://eglenn.scripts.mit.edu/citystate/2013/02/major-improvements-to-acs-r-sneak-peak-at-version-1-0/ -- and this bug causes the automated downloading to crash when this result comes up.)

    Sorry, I should have also noted: this query will work for other geographies, or for this geography with other tables.

    Hi. I'm digging into this. It looks like a bug. Once we have it fixed I'll post back here and let you know.

      Does not work at the state level for the following:

      I've also noticed that this is a more frequent problem at different geos (AIAN,Place) and that the problem tables vary.
