Policy Server crashes on RpcDispatcher::evalCall

I run a Policy Server, and this one crashes when we modify SSO Attributes within the Federation Partnership using the AdminUI which was causing the server to crash. From the backtrace, we note the RpcDispatcher module seems to be culprit. The backtrace shows the following :
