If users merge a normal project with a Data Migration Workbench project in App Designer:

- a blank definition type is getting inserted in to the project
- the merged project is no longer accessible after saving in App Designer.

Replication Steps:

2. Logged in to App Designer
3. Created a new project "GCS_TEST_PROJ" and inserted a single definition (e.g. PSOPRDEFN), Save.
4. File > Merge Projects
5. Search for "GCS_TEST_DMW_PROJ"
6. Click "Insert"
7. Save project
8. At this point, notice in the Upgrade tab, there is a "blank" definition
9. Close project.
10. Try to re-open project "GCS_TEST_PROJ"
11. The project cannot be found
