This is a nasty bug, it doesn't always happen, and i can't seem to reproduce it consistently.

It sometimes happens when trying to fetch a versioned entity which doesn't exist anymore in the database.

PHP 5.4.5
PostgreSQL 9.1
Doctrine 2.2.2 with array cache, XML mapping driver

Entity config: BaseEntity mapped as mapped-superclass, User entity extending the base entity:

Mapping file:

<mapped-superclass name="Specula\Entities\BaseEntity">

<field name="updatedOn" type="datetime" column="updated_on" />
<field name="version" version="true" type="integer" column="version" />

<many-to-one field="updatedBy" target-entity="User">
<join-column name="updated_by" referenced-column-name="user_id" />


User entity:

<entity name="Specula\Entities\User" table="users">
<id name="id" type="integer" column="user_id">
<generator strategy="AUTO" />

<field name="userName" type="string" column="username" length="20" />
<field name="passwordHash" type="string" column="password_hash" length="40" />
<field name="fullName" type="string" column="fullname" length="45" />
<field name="isAdmin" type="boolean" column="is_admin" />
<field name="isActive" type="boolean" column="is_active" />


Relevant part of stack trace:

PHP Error [2]

Deleting the proxy, restarting webserver, restarting database server doesn't help. i'm using the array cache and apc is disabled.

If you need more information let me know i'm currently experiencing this bug so i can provide more information.

Best regards,
