If using Java 7 (i.e. version 1.7) then Xena will throw the following error on startup:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
at au.gov.naa.digipres.xena.litegui.LiteMainFrame.initNormaliseItemsPanel(LiteMainFrame.java:383)
at au.gov.naa.digipres.xena.litegui.LiteMainFrame.<init>(LiteMainFrame.java:211)
at au.gov.naa.digipres.xena.litegui.LiteMainFrame.main(LiteMainFrame.java:1429)

This bug is noted against the Java bug database here:
http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=7148436
(7022041 : TitleBorder Null Pointer Exception)

Xena should be changed to make it more robust in this case.

    Looks like Margot has already fixed this in the Java7 branch so I have assigned to her.

    Assigned to Kirti to test. Found and tagged where this was fixed by Margot.

    Kirti - this bug fix was included as part of the 6.1.0 release and has probably already been tested by you after all. Can you just check this and then close.
