1. Set up remote staging
2. Deploy a portlet only to the staging bundle and add it to a page (I used the calendar portlet)
3. Create a Web Content, publish to Live
4. Delete the Web Content (empty the recycle bin)
5. Publish to Live again
The publish fails with a NullPointerException, see the logs for the Live bundle.
Publish is successful.
master is not affected
