Hi, we are running Activiti(5.16.4) on Servicemix(5.3.1)

Upon calling org.activiti.engine.impl.TaskServiceImpl.complete method we have encountered following exception:

Where thrown exception refer to this chunk of code in ExecutionEntity class:

    List<TaskEntity> cachedTasks = dbSqlSession.findInCache(TaskEntity.class);
    for (TaskEntity cachedTask : cachedTasks) {
       if (cachedTask.getExecutionId().equals(this.getId())) {               // line 1067
          allTasks.add(cachedTask);
       }
    }


Which seems as cached list of Task entities containing null object, while this iteration is not prepared to handle it. I tried to restart Servicemix prior to testing my case, hoping the cache could loose this entry, but it still ends with same exception. Is there any other/better way to clear APIs cache?

This occurence happens only in one particular user task created within bpmn process on all of its instances. Possibly, process definition itself is faulty, but i am not able to identify any issues over it.

Thank you for any help
