Internal Server Error when accessing board configuration if workflow steps and statuses are not configured correctly


      JIRA appears to not validate workflow XML when importing it. This means that you could import a workflow which refers to statuses which do not exist in the system.

      If a project which uses such a workflow is shown on a board, then when a user attempts to configure the board, they will see an Internal Server Error with the following stack trace:

      Although JIRA should fix this so that validation occurs, we can also add a null check to ensure that such problematic workflows do not break GreenHopper. This should not be a common occurrence.
