It looks like loadDrawable() in TiBackgroundImageLoadTask (line 58) is returning a BitmapDrawable that has a null Bitmap in some instances, we need to more gracefully handle that situation. See helpdesk #35081.

    For another customer yesterday I made this change:

    http://github.com/appcelerator/titanium_mobile/commit/91ddf8884ecc961369cb131b635d91c102eb2cc8"> http://github.com/appcelerator/titanium_mobile/commit/91ddf8884ecc9...

    I thought maybe the NPE could be the context ref itself. But indeed maybe it's at the Bitmap level.

    Add'l commit to try to eliminate NPEs from null bitmap:

    The last commit doesn't address the perhaps deeper problem as to why a bitmap might be null in the first place.
