This can not be reproduced. I checked dev version, pure 8.1 and 9.1 with exactly the same update as user has. I think something was broken in user directory. However sure null check should be added. Fixed in

That's a typo, sure I meant 8.1, not 9.1  :)

I realized the bug shows up when the C/C++ plugin is not installed in the IDE. However, a proper error message should be displayed to let the developer know how to fix it, instead of producing a dump of the Java stacktrace :)

You use 8.1 (IDE log shows: NetBeans IDE 8.1 (Build 20151231-debian-8.1). 
This bug is fixed in 8.2.
Please upgrade to 8.2 (and please allow IDE to get updates since a patch to 8.2 has been done, but this patch is not included into 8.2 distribution, only into the update center).
