Confluence 7.7+ NPE in com.atlassian.confluence.content.render.xhtml.DefaultConversionContext breaks ME-Include
If a MultiExcerpt Include macro is placed on a page AFTER a Confluence "Page Properties Report" macro the ME-Include fails to render. There may be other scenarios, involving other Confluence macros, where this problem occurs.
Root cause is a NullPointerException in Atlassian's DefaultConversionContext:
This problem does not occur in Confluence 6.13.0 but does in Confluence 7.7.3 when using the same version of the MultiExcerpt plugin. It is suspected that this bug was introduced by Atlassian sometime in 7.7.
