Comment 15 David Shea 2016-03-23 20:41:27 UTC
What steps did you take to hit this error? Specifically, what actions did you take in the user spoke?

Comment 16 Daniel Mach 2016-03-24 09:05:42 UTC
I think I only opened the user spoke and closed it without making any changes.
I don't remember exactly.

Comment 17 David Shea 2016-03-24 13:43:13 UTC
I see. This is reproducible by opening the advanced settings dialog and not entering anything in the groups field.
