Sorry, can't reproduce.

I can put in some additional error checks into some classes to help
diagnose it in the future, but I can't even guess what would cause this.

Note - if you open y/b, you will need to adjust the path to a from x/a
to y/a in y/b/nbproject/private/ This is only true
if you were not using version control and so .../x/a was stored as an
absolute path; if the projects were inside some VCS working dir this
should not be necessary because "../a" is stored as the path to a from b.
