Noob question: error creating a new project in v6.1

After creating a new OpenErp v6.1 system, I installed all modules, and went to create a new base for "projects" & "tasks". Truthfully, I don't NEED to set up billing for these projects just yet, it's just more to organize personal tasks. The PROBLEM is that whenever I go to create a new "project", enter info, and hit "save" or "done", I end up with the following error-

"Integrity Error

The operation cannot be completed, probably due to the following: - deletion: you may be trying to delete a record while other records still reference it - creation/update: a mandatory field is not correctly set

[object with reference: project_id - project.id]"

My obvious first thought was that I hadn't filled in a particular field, but after filling in all of them, I have the same error. Maybe I'm filling them in wrong somehow? Any ideas are appreciated.

Edit: Sadly, after spending time becoming relatively familiar with 7, I need to use 6.1 as a requirement for work.

Half-solution!: There seemed to be some sort of conflict with multiple modules that I'd installed. After uninstalling everything, I simply started by installing "Project Management" and entering tasks and projects from the beginning. I have a feeling as i install more modules, I'll get this error once again, and update with which made things go wonky.

try updating to OpenERP 7.0 and creating a new project there. Maybe the problem is already fixed

You should report a bug. Normally, there is no way this error can come. did you customize anything?

Have you tried setting debug level of detail for your log files. More detailed reports may help us help you. I encountered the same kind of weirdness while learning. It is often a consequence of doing things out of order. Debug level might give you a better idea of what you did out of order.
