how to (regex?) search for specific variable set to 0

I have way too many tasker profiles and tasks to manually find what I'm looking for.  There's some conflict I've created whereby a specific variable is being set to 0 when it shouldn't be (because I'm a bad 'programmer') 

How do i find any tasks or profiles that set %BTCNCTD to 0?  I've tried regex search .*set.*%BTCNCTD.% but that doesn't find anything

Just searching for %BTCNCTD gives me too may hits (as I refer to that variable a lot)

oops I meant I've tried regex search .*set.*%BTCNCTD.*

Don't have time to look to see if this is easy, but if there is a way to export all profiles and tasks to XML/text file you could then start greping for the variable use.

Make a profile with the contacts of Event Variable Set and set the condition for that variable to be equal to zero.

Within the task just write to a log file the date, time value of a variable and %TRUN

Set the launch priority for that task. Very high. 

That will give you all the tasks running at the time the variable was changed. 

If you are lucky you're offending task will be in the log..

Another approach would me to enable and check the run log for the time the variable was set to zero.
