Validation error "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: s" when editing local block



I have a pagetype with a local block. 

Whenever I edit the page and change any of the fields in the block, I get the following validation error: "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: s"

Request data:

URL: /EPiServer/cms/Stores/contentdata/3348_6684

Payload: {"id":"3348_6684","properties":{"media.image":"\"/Global/img10.jpg\""},"publishChanges":false}

Response: {}&&{"successful":false,"savedContentLink":"3348_6684","properties":[{"name":"media","value":null,"successful":false,"validationErrors":"Value cannot be null.\r\nParameter name: s"}],"validationErrors":[{"source":null,"validationType":0,"severity":3,"propertyName":null,"errorMessage":"Value cannot be null.\r\nParameter name: s","relatedProperties":[]}]}


This happens only when changing data in the block-property, and not when changing regular properties on the same page. 

It's a MVC solution with patch 4 installed. It occurs in all environments, dev, test, prod.

Anyone have any clues on what might be wrong? 



    [ContentType(GUID = "061b8d97-1fc6-48e2-85d2-387fcee15aa8", Order = 100)]
    public class CompanyPage : SimpleContentPage, IHaveMedia
        [Display(Order = 10, GroupName = TabNames.Media)]
        public virtual MediaBlock Media { get; set; }

        // More properties

        [Display(Order = 106, GroupName = TabNames.Information)]
        [UIHint(UIHint.Textarea, PresentationLayer.Edit)]

        [Display(Order = 110, GroupName = TabNames.Information)]
        public virtual string Description { get; set; }

        [Display(Order = 120, GroupName = TabNames.Information)]
        public virtual string AlternateText { get; set; }

Which version of EPiSErver 7 are you running? I think I hade something similiar on 7.0 but that it disapeared in 7.1.

Thanks for replying. Unfortunately it happens with both 7.0 and 7.1.

Just found out that this only happens in forms-editing mode. If editing with OPE/PropertyFor it works fine.

Fwiw, the cause was a custom IActionInvoker registered with StructureMap.
