Description (partial)

When committing change in the web UI of your Cisco Email Security Appliance (ESA), you may see the following message:

An application error has occurred and has been logged to the GUI log.

This will occur despite the text above indicating that the commit was successful:

Success 	— 	Your changes have been committed.

Corresponding to this error message in the GUI, the GUI logs will show an application fault such as the following:

Mon Aug 18 12:00:00 2014 Critical: An application fault occurred: ('screen/ doCommitAction|324', "<type 'exceptions.UnboundLocalError'>", "local variable 'config_text' referenced before assignment", '[util/ screenLoop|408] [util/ inverseExtend|328] [util/ __call__|769] [screen/ __call__|27] [util/ __call__|769] [screen/ __call__|49] [util/ __call__|769] [screen/ __call__|190] [util/ __call__|771] [screen/ __call__|77] [screen/ executeAction|70] [screen/ doCommitAction|324]')

When this application fault is encountered, the changes will be committed despite the error.  However, the configuration history log will not be updated.

This application fault will occur when the following three conditions are met:

1) The appliance has rollbackconfig disabled

2) The appliance has a configuration history log subscription

3) The configuration history log subscription has the 'Include Passwords in Log' option set to 'Yes'
