We are seeing an intermittent problem on the Rwanda Rwinkwavu server which is running 1.6.2 dev Build 12911 openMRS. The problem results in the patient dashboard appearing blank below the tabs. I have attached a more complete stack trace but the stack trace indicates the problem is due to
ERROR - errorhandler_jsp._jspService(72) |2011-02-22 12:31:25,586| Error on page /openmrs/WEB-INF/view/patientDashboardForm.jsp
javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: javax.servlet.ServletException: javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: javax.el.ELException: Error reading 'lines' on type org.openmrs.layout.web.name.NameTemplate

Restarting tomcat resolves the issue, but this is not an ideal solution during the middle of the day. The problem seems to be generic across all patients once it crops up and last time it was noted the network connection was particularly bad so may be related.
