      Description

      In troubleshooting an NPE that keeps cropping up whenever I attempt to run an itemupdate, I was a bit frustrated trying to locate the full stack trace for the error. It wasn't visible in dspace.log or catalina.out. Tim Donohue found that the problem was with the exception handling in DSpace/dspace-api/src/main/java/org/dspace/app/itemupdate/ItemUpdate.java. I will attach a patch file by tomorrow, as soon as I confirm it is working.
