Symptoms

The problem occurs in the Taleo to Add Pending Worker flow, when moving from the Person Information stop back to the Identification stop using the Back button.
A Null Pointer Exception (NPE) is raised and the user is unable to go back to the previous stop in the train.

The problem does not occur if the user clicks directly onto the Identification stop in the train.
Also, the Back button works fine when moving from other stops (like Employment back to Person Information).
