Bug Description

If you load gcstar, and select an "import" option (from the new collection dialog), without first opening a collection or creating a new collection, gcstar hangs with the error:

*** unhandled exception in callback:
*** Can't call method "getGroups" on unblessed reference at /home/nyall/Source/gcstar/gcstar/bin/../lib/gcstar/GCDialogs.pm line 1407.
*** ignoring at ./gcstar line 328.

Can confirm on how to make it happen but my error is slightly different:

Can't call method "getGroups" on unblessed reference at /usr/local/bin/../lib/gcstar/GCDialogs.pm line 1416.

I am not a PERL programmer, but I could try to help debuging this if someone guides me.
