Is anyone else experiencing errors when they rename a workflow?

Hi guys,

I'm experiencing an unusual behaviour in Nuxeo 5.6 with hotfixes 00 and 01. It occured prior to the installation of the hotfixes. It has happened with several different workflow names, and I've tried reinstalling the server. I'm running the server on Windows 7, on a 64 bit machine. I'm wondering if this is happening on other installations as well?

To reproduce the behaviour, create a workflow, called debug_Workflow and attach an automation chain to a context button in a document. It really only needs one operation, to start the debug_Workflow workflow. I've attached it to a custom document, which extends a file.

Initially, it works.

Then, rename the workflow to debug_Workflow_a, in both the Workflows section and in the automation chain operation.

Go back to the document, and click the button. You'll get the following error: An error occured while executing the chain 'formA_debug_sendToPdcAcceptedChain': null

The server.log entry is at the bottom of this email. The first line of the error is 2012-10-01 13:12:25,495 ERROR [org.nuxeo.ecm.automation.jsf.OperationActionBean] org.nuxeo.ecm.automation.OperationException: Failed to invoke operation Context.StartWorkflow.

Rename the workflow back to debug_Workflow, and it works again.

Well if you're sure you've run into a bug, you can make an account to create an issue directly in our JIRA here https://jira.nuxeo.com/browse/NXP. But if you're not sure, or if you're having a Studio issue, we'll create one for you.
