Comment 1 Jon Orris 2003-07-02 20:14:48 UTC
Appears to be due to a lurking lifecycle listener checking for workflow
information. As we no longer use workflow with templates, it is null.


Comment 2 Justin Ross 2003-07-07 16:31:58 UTC
Fixed in perforce 33323.  We no longer assume that items getting published have
workflows, since templates for instance do not.
