    I am playing around with 3.0 preview. I imported a bunch of existing projects (2.6.1) into 3.0 (using admin->export, admin->import). We are using custom fields and field schemes. It seems like the import did not go smoothely. When I try to edit issues or create a new one I get an exception jira page. In the logs I see the following: [ERROR] ServletDispatcher - -Could not execute action <java.lang.NullPointerException>java.lang.NullPointerException at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomFieldImpl.populateFromIssue(CustomFieldImpl.java:414) at com.atlassian.jira.web.action.issue.EditIssue.populateCustomFieldHolderFromIssue(EditIssue.java:161) at com.atlassian.jira.web.action.issue.EditIssue.doDefault(EditIssue.java:97) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(NativeMethodAccessorImpl.java:39) at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.java:25) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:324) at webwork.action.ActionSupport.invokeCommand(ActionSupport.java:415) at webwork.action.ActionSupport.execute(ActionSupport.java:144) at com.atlassian.jira.action.JiraActionSupport.execute(JiraActionSupport.java:49) at webwork.dispatcher.GenericDispatcher.executeAction(GenericDispatcher.java:131) at com.atlassian.jira.web.dispatcher.JiraServletDispatcher.service(JiraServletDispatcher.java:186) at javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:853) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.internalDoFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:247) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.doFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:193) at com.opensymphony.module.sitemesh.filter.PageFilter.parsePage(PageFilter.java:129) at com.opensymphony.module.sitemesh.filter.PageFilter.doFilter(PageFilter.java:61) at com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.SitemeshExcludePathFilter.doFilter(SitemeshExcludePathFilter.java:36) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.internalDoFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:213) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.doFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:193) at com.atlassian.seraph.filter.SecurityFilter.doFilter(SecurityFilter.java:168) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.internalDoFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:213) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.doFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:193) at com.atlassian.seraph.filter.LoginFilter.doFilter(LoginFilter.java:181) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.internalDoFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:213) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.doFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:193) at com.atlassian.util.profiling.filters.ProfilingFilter.doFilter(ProfilingFilter.java:132) at com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.ProfilingAndErrorFilter.doFilter(ProfilingAndErrorFilter.java:25) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.internalDoFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:2 ...
