Claiming and completing a task causes a NullPointerException in CUBA 6.2.5

Hi,

while trying to model a process using the CUBA BPM plugin I ran into the problem that completing a task after claiming it causes a NullPointerException in CUBA. After trying several things I couldn’t resolve the problem. Every task and other element in my process has an ID
but the error still occurs.

To demonstrate the problem I created a minimal BPMN Model.
Stacktrace:

To reproduce the error do the following:

  1. Import the model
  2. Start the process using ProcInstanceEdit and assign an actor
  3. Claim the User Task
  4. choose either "outcome_a" or "outcome_b"
