No idea how to reproduce but this may fix it.
I have a project on which I can reliably reproduce this.
I'll try the new build, and if still happens, I'll upload it somewhere.
Yes please, verify or reopen as appropriate. (If this exception happens frequently and interferes with routine work, it may be P2 and thus a 70_HR_FIX_CANDIDATE.)
Seems to be fixed in 201103220400.
Great! (Feel free to mark bugs VERIFIED yourself if you could reproduce before but not after the fix.)
More general fix in bug #197210, but backporting as a prerequisite: releases #c5914517657c
