Error : Object reference not set to an instance of an object. When attempting to open a batch using Membership Transaction Type = 3 in a Membership Dues Import

Users may encounter the error : "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." when attempting to open the resulting batch of a Membership Dues Batch Import process that uses a Membership Transaction Type of 3.
 We are currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future service pack.
 

Steps to Duplicate

1) Configure a dues based membership with at least two levels and a renewal window (window length does not matter).
2) Navigate to a constituent record and add a level 1 membership from step 1.
3) Export the import file header for the Membership Dues Batch Template.
4) Fill out the Bill To and Primary Member fields with the constituent's Lookup ID, Send Renewal to : Giver, Transaction Date : (today), Program : (membership name), Level : (name of level 2), Term : 1 year(s), Membership transaction type : 3
5)Create a import process based on the Membership Dues Batch Template.
6) Map and import the file from step 5.
7) Attempt to open the resulting batch and note the error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object"
