This error has been fixed by bug 811525. 

The error reported here is not identical to the one fixed in bug 811525 but it has the same root cause. The cause is improper hierarchical import of resources. With that being fixed, resources are imported in the correct order and thus the errors from the attached logs are fixed.

Bulk closing of BZs that have no target version set, but which are ON_QA for more than a year and thus are in production for a long time.
