FIX: A System.NullReferenceException exception occurs when you deploy a composite database project in Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition GDR

SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario in Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition GDR:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
