"BPM-70830: Deployment validation failed" when deploying from composer

Hi BPM developers,
I am trying to deploy a BPM project based on a template to Oracle BPM Suite 11.1.1.6.0 running in SOA & BPM Development VM and I get the following error :
“BPM-70830: Deployment validation failed. Cause: An unexpected error has occurred during deployment validation”
Checking the project with the Validate button returns no problem.
The weblogic log shows the following error
<Oct 30, 2012 6:13:51 AM PDT> <Error> <oracle.bpm.composer.beans.toolbar.SarExportDialogBean> <BEA-000000> <
java.lang.NullPointerException

By the way, I have been following the script from the "Getting Started with Oracle BPM Suite 11gR1" book if anyone stumbled upon the same issue.
TIA

You're right, I restarted the server again and again...
I have just opened the sr in metalink, it has been confirmed as a bug. Unfortunately there's no way to workaround. What I can do now is waiting for the solution.
