BUG in Activiti or not?

I created a very advanced custom workflow. The diagram is shown on this picture https://www.dropbox.com/s/9phdey2pd976weo/fullProcess.bmp?dl=0

The process works as it is intended - no problem with the logic.

It appears that if the user task is inside of an subprocess- alfresco stops showing the tasks the user finished. I tried to go and see the completed tasks and I had the red line "Error loading items". When I undeployed the workflow everything worked just fine.
I fixed my workflow by removing the subprocesses, but still I'd like to be able to use them.

Is this a bug in Activiti, or Alfresco, or was there something I wasn't doing as I should?

The error I was getting was null pointer exception

I'd like for some of the Activiti developers to see if this is really a bug, because Activiti rocks and it would be a shame to let something like this slip.

Thanks,
Irena
