Exception:Server was unable to process request. --> Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
AxisFault
faultCode: {http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/}Server

On the face of it, it seems like a null reference problem. So, question also arises that which object is null.
Moreover, this problem occurs shows up once in a while only.
