Archival description CSV export from clipboard with 0 results yields fake .zip file

Category:CSV export
Target version:Release 2.4.0
Google Code Legacy ID: Tested version:2.4
Sponsored:No Requires documentation:


To reproduce:
1. Create a draft record
2. Add to clipboard
3. Go to clipboard
4. Attempt to export archival description CSV with "include descendants" unchecked

Result: Task claims to have completed successfully and that it generated a 0 byte .zip file. However, going to job management page and trying to open this 0 byte file gives a page not found error.

Expected result: the task should not indicate that it generated a file, and should mention no results were set for the export.

Looks great!

If there's nothing on the clipboard, the export button is not present. However, if you arrive on the clipboard page with results, then remove them and click export before a page reload, the job will still realize there are 0 results, and report so rather than producing a fake zip file.
