Can not access "site column" settings after site collection restore to an other farm

Hi

I was developing a site collection on a develping farm. After backing up (with stsadm -o backup) and restoring it on a production farm, I could not access the "site column" settings anymore (e.g. in _layouts\mngfield.aspx oder "add from site column").

I always get the following error message "The given key was not present in the dictionary."

I have tried to fix it starting the "Configuration Wizard" with no success.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thx

I found the following thread which helped me to figure out which columns was causing the error:

After this, I deleted that site column on the development farm, created another backup and restored it on the production farm.  Now the problem seems to be resolved.
