   In a nutshell, it means that CWIS is trying to save a value into a
   metadata field that doesn't exist.  Have any changes been made directly
   to the underlying SQL database?  Or if not, have you made changes to the
   default set of metadata field definitions?  (If nothing's been done to
   modify the SQL database directly the error is obviously a bug, but it'll
   help to know what changes or additions were made to the metadata fields
   leading up to this point.)
