I received the attached error when I performed the following actions:

  • File > Synchronise Feeds
  • Windows Common Feedlist
  • Next
  • Finish
  • Exception error

The application kept running and the feedlist was synchonised.

Error log attached.

    Exception error log

    Do we still have that problem, Dare?

     
  • Torsten Rendelmann

    The problem seems to be the function
    FeedSourceManager::public FeedSourceEntry SourceOf(FeedSource sourceInstance), that can return null if the source could not be found. There are vrious usages of it and we have to decide if we change the usages or return a "Empty" source instance.
    A feedsource cannot be found: if the user has deleted the source meanwhile, but web updates still pending with results returned after that (or exceptions), etc.
    Bug is still valid in version 1.9.0.1002.
    I could repro as I deleted my common windows feed source.

    The error log points to the real issue, the issue in the last comment seems to be another one...
