What does that error mean, exactly? Especially given:

      <aspect name="xyz:matter">
         <title>XYZ Matter</title>
         <description>XYZ Matter</description>
         <properties>
            <property name="xyz:matterNumber">
               <title>matterNumber</title>
               <type>d:text</type>
               <mandatory>true</mandatory>
            </property>
            <property name="xyz:matterReceivedDate">
               <title>matterReceivedDate</title>
               <type>d:datetime</type>
               <mandatory>true</mandatory>
            </property>
            <property name="xyz:matterClosed">
               <title>matterClosed</title>
               <type>d:boolean</type>
               <mandatory>false</mandatory>
            </property>
            <property name="xyz:matterClosedDate">
               <title>matterClosedDate</title>
               <type>d:datetime</type>
               <mandatory>false</mandatory>
            </property>
            <property name="xyz:matterSecured">
               <title>matterSecured</title>
               <type>d:boolean</type>
               <mandatory>false</mandatory>
            </property>
         </properties>
         <associations>
            <association name="xyz:matterAssociation">
               <title>ZYZ Matter association</title>
               <source>
                  <mandatory>true</mandatory>
                  <many>false</many>
               </source>
               <target>
                  <class>abc:abcDocument</class>
                  <mandatory>true</mandatory>
                  <many>false</many>
               </target>
            </association>
         </associations>
      </aspect>

the abc:abcDocument type is a real type which I have used to create the content with. I was even able to populate its fields with values.

Yet when I try to apply the aspect, I get:

2013-01-06 09:29:32,995  WARN  [component.property.UIAssociation] [http-apr-8080-exec-4] Failed to find association definition for association 'xyz:matter'.

but ONLY on the console! Not in the Explorer UI!

The system boots without an error - so why is it I can select the aspect to add, yet this stupid error appears on the console. It just returns to the details page of the content as though nothing happened.
