Symptoms

If a map is deleted from the model (such as via the script ces_delete_map.ces), and an object in that map is current selected in the Viewer, the Viewer will throw a NullPointer Exception.


The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1. Load several maps in the viewer
2. Select an object in one of those maps.
3. Use ces_delete_map.ces to delete one of the maps.
4. The viewer will throw an exception when it unloads that map.
