From the stack trace, you are using Firefox and the deployer is falling down when trying to process your proxy server settings. So have a look at them and see if there's anything peculiar. (Tools, Options, Advanced, Network, Settings.)

Thanks, but I'm not using a proxy at all and the error is the same when I'm using IE.
