Confirmed Bug in Bb 9.1 Graded Blogs

I just learned of a new confirmed bug with graded blogs. The error looks like this:

Blackboard 9.1, SP6
------------------------------
Error ContentRenderer template processing failed.
For reference, the Error ID is 0397a347-d11b-4856-ae9e-41269950a1a0.

The blog has 100 entries and the teacher cannot access the blog anymore.

This happens when there is a graded blog within a course and a student makes a post as anonymous. The instructor will lose access to the blog.

It is recommended that a course builder (TA role not tested) go into the course and remove the anonymous entry. Then the instructor will then regain access into the blog.
