Either that, or it is a problem with the export.

It's a weighting issue. See screenshots from MH:

This remains a problem as of r2019, but if no one is a able to handle it immediately it could be delayed to patch release. For now I'll leave it for MH 1.1.0 see foot.L and foot.R in utilities | skeleton debug

More detailed info, replicating from http://www.makehumancommunity.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=33546#p33546

"...because there appears to be several issues with the weights for the default rig.

To see the weight differences, start makehuman, choose the default rig, go to Utilities, Debug Skeleton, and compare, for example, upperleg01.L and upperleg01.R, or foot.L and foot.R. I would assume that the weights ought to be mirrored. A quick and dirty comparison of vertex counts in ./makehuman/data/rigs/default_weights.mhw show several differences:

It doesn't solve all the issues mentioned. Don't use this patch. It was just a first test.

Any update on this?

No, not really. Anyone who is an expert in weight painting?

status check r2096

I will add here that the asymmetric foot weights happen with multiple rigs: i.e., with default, game, and CMU rigs. Therefore, it seems that the weights were created and copied across skeletons. Not sure how this workflow was implemented (by Manuel?). Do we have utility code for copying weights or did Manuel have another way of doing this? Interestingly the foot "names" do not remain the same across rigs.

Not sure if have the makehuman-utils installed (https://bitbucket.org/MakeHuman/makehuman-utils), there is a weighting tool. Forum user DredNicolson is going to help with the weighting.
Another thing, that puzzles me is the fact that the imported default skeleton in Blender shows different weighting issues than one can see in MakeHuman's skeleton debug tool. E.g. the foot.L/foot.R vertex groups in Blender seem to be symmetrically correct on a first glance, in contrast to what we can see in the screen shots above.

Importing the default skeleton and exporting it again shows the following errors:

upperarm01.L____tail: MISSED
tongue03____tail: MISSED
upperarm01.R____tail: MISSED

Not happening for 1.1.1.
