Hey! I installed the news version of feeds an of the job_scheduler, but I got this error on cron-run:
Fatal error: Call to a member function import() on a non-object in /sites/all/modules/contrib/feeds/feeds.module on line 67
Please help me!

What's happening is that you have invalid sources in your feeds_source table.

This happens if you e. g. configure an importer with a standalone form, upload through that form (produce a source of feed_nid=0), then attach that importer to a content type. Or vice versa: you create an importer attached to a content type, upload through a node of that content type (produce a source of feed_nid=[nid]), then reconfigure to use th standalone form. In these circumstances, the created sources kept importing. The newer version of Feeds avoids that by checking whether a source 'exists' and is 'valid' - see FeedsSource::existing().

There is an exception missing in this routine though. This is critical, we should get out a fix fast.

I actually think we should fail silently in such situations. "Phantom sources" are not per se a problem, we should just make sure that we don't import them periodically.
