When I try to create a space at the Company Home level, I get the following error in the browser:

Failed to create new space due to error: Failed to execute script 'workspace://SpacesStore/2fe67f16-31a6-11dd-8332-17eb8617dd4e': Failed to execute script 'workspace://SpacesStore/2fe67f16-31a6-11dd-8332-17eb8617dd4e': TypeError: Cannot call method "childByNamePath" of null (AlfrescoScript#392)

and this one at the console:

I am able to create new spaces in the spaces that already exist under Company Home.  I have searched using google with out much success.  I have found a couple of topics that I think are related, but I am not entirely sure.
