I encountered the following error while developing my own pages within SS and now I can't get rid of it!

"[User Error] Bad RecordClassName '' and $baseClass not set"

I have reverted to the original page.php file but with no effect. After that I re-instated all of my php pages for the various bits I had developed and still no change. I have a full trace message if anyone wants it. It's only my development box but I wondered if there was a quick fix before I re-installed SS.

Have a look at your database for a record with NULL in the classname. If you look at the back trace you should see the table to look at for the null record.
