Comment 1 Martin Schovanek 2009-05-11 09:58:00 UTC
Created attachment 81878 [details]
Comment 2 Erno Mononen 2009-05-11 14:01:09 UTC
Can't seem to reproduce, does this happen to you only when FoD is enabled?
Comment 3 Martin Schovanek 2009-05-12 09:57:08 UTC
Reproducible only once when the Ruby feature is activated by ergonomics. Then I was trying to disable the Ruby and
create the project again and the NPE didn't appear.
Comment 4 Erno Mononen 2009-05-13 14:40:54 UTC
OK, passing to Jarda then.
Comment 5 Jaroslav Tulach 2009-05-15 18:51:52 UTC
Comment 6 Jaroslav Tulach 2009-05-15 19:23:05 UTC
ergonomics#73414ff4ad4a - sorry for the ugliness of the fix.
Comment 7 Quality Engineering 2009-05-16 08:58:56 UTC
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200905160201* on (upload may still be in progress)

Log: #164844: If we were not at the end of release cycle I would try to fix the infrastructure, but these days let's play it safe and fix just the one case that is known to be broken
