When user don't select Goal Plan checkbox Performance and Development goals system gives ADF Faces Error

In Goal Management, if user don't check the "Include in Goal Plan" box, then click Tasks, receive error:
javax.el.ELException: java.lang.NullPointerException
ADF_FACES-60097:For more information, please see the server's error log for an entry beginning with: ADF_FACES-60096:Server Exception during PPR, #16

User would expect to see this error:
You cannot add a goal with the start date 2014-03-13 because you have no goal plan for that date. (HRG-3120139)
You must add goals with start dates between the start and end dates of an existing goal plan. Either change the goal start date or contact your HR specialist to assign another goal plan.

Scenarios tested:
1. Add Goal in Goal Popup, "Include in Goal Plan" checkbox is automatically selected. If uncheck, can go to Tasks without error. Click Save and Close and I receive the expected HRG-3120139 error
2. Add Goal by clicking More Goal Details in popup > Enter goal name > DON'T check plan box > Tasks > Receive ADF Faces error
3. Add Goal by clicking More Goal Details in popup > Enter goal name > check plan box > Tasks > back to Goal Details tab > Uncheck plan box > back to Tasks tab > Click Save and Close and I receive the expected HRG-3120139 error

From testing, it looks like if the box is not checked at all, the ADF Faces error comes up. This error means nothing and users have no way to know what to correct.
