      Description

      Firstly, I download 'pdi-ce-8.2.0.0-342.zip' file from SourceForge, then verify that it has the correct hash.

      Extract the downloaded file to some location, please don't use the same location as existing installation.

      Start PDI, create a new transformation. Then on the left panel, select Design tab, expand Flow group, hover mouse on Annotate Stream or Shared Dimensions step. Everything is okay.

      Now I restart PDI and do the same procedures as above. On mouseover the mentioned steps, a null pointer exception occurs.

      Exit PDI, delete the 'system' folder inside Pentaho installation location. Then copy the 'system' folder from the downloaded zip archive to Pentaho installation folder. Mouseover works normally until next restart.

      Restart PDI, on mouseover the mentioned steps, a null pointer exception occurs, which makes it impossible to interact with these steps.

      Also, when the NPE occurs, the icons for these steps are missing.
