here is a little more detail:
closed 1 IAL-G5.local/ /
connect created 4 / /

I'm using local instances of the same program to test it.  The nodes can join and leave a Chord ring in a p2p style so that the network will stay alive while individual nodes are added or shutdown.  I am closing a connect with an attachment of a static Integer of 1, just to keep track of what it is.  I create a new connection with static Integer of 4 (just happens to be the 4th one I create).  The creation itself seems to trigger the error.  Usually after this connection is made, there is a wait period before it is used.

Sample code that hopefully makes sense out of context:

 public void connectToPredecessor() throws IOException {
        if (this.predecessorSession != null) {
            System.out.println("closed " + predecessorSession.getAttachment() + " " + predecessorSession.getRemoteAddress() + " " + predecessorSession.getLocalAddress());
        this.predecessorSession = connect(this.getPredecessorAddress());

public ProtocolSession connect(SocketAddress address) throws IOException {
        IoProtocolConnector connector = new IoProtocolConnector(new SocketConnector());
        ProtocolSession session = connector.connect(address, 60, getProvider());
        System.out.println("connect created " + session.getAttachment() + " " + session.getRemoteAddress() + " " + session.getLocalAddress());
        return session;

The connectToPredecessor method is only done if I'm sure a new address was set.  Like I said, I could be misusing MINA but its just odd that everything seems to work fine.  I'll try to make a test case soon.

what are you exactly doing for closing and creating new ProtocolSession ?  The ProtocolSession with NULL selection keys is the newly opened one or the closed one ?

is error I'm running into and I'm unsure of the cause.  I am closing ProtocolSessions and creating new ones which may have something to do with it.  I also use the DemuxingProtocolCodecFactory to manage my protocol messages as well as their encoding and decoding.  
I cannot figure out how the session's SelectionKey is becoming null.  I am using a checkout of the 0.7 branch from earlier today.  
This error occurs after I create a new connection and start using the ProtocolSession.  I'm still not sure what causes it but everything appears to still work if I put a try/catch for a NullPointerException in the SocketIoProcessor around line 496
