I am using QGIS 1.8 on Windows 7 (I've tried 1.8.0-5 and 1.8.0-7)

I want to perform a point in polygon analysis using the Vector > Analysis Tools menu.

My point layer is the result of a SpatiaLite query which returns 10'000 points.

My polygon layer is a simple shapefile with about 150 different polygons. Both layers are in WGS84 (EPSG:4326).

When I click the "OK" button in the Point in Polygon tool, just nothing happens. The progress bar stays at 0%, but I cannot click "Cancel" (i.e. nothing happens). I can click on the Close-Button in the upper right though, the window then disappears.

This works in the latest master of 1.9.

This is the output from the message log:

An error has occured while executing Python code:

Traceback (most recent call last):

    tmpGeom = QgsGeometry(pntFeat.geometry())
TypeError: arguments did not match any overloaded call:
  QgsGeometry(): too many arguments
  QgsGeometry(QgsGeometry): argument 1 has unexpected type 'NoneType'

If is not working on qgis master please reopen this ticket. Cheers!
