Unexpected Error on SharePoint Web Analytics Page (Wilson Leung )

Extracted from the original post

We have recently deployed another new branded look and feel to our SharePoint 2010 intranet. It comes with heavy customization and of course a custom master page. Everything works fine until we hit the web analytics report under site settings – the famous SharePoint unexpected error.

We went to the ULS log and found the following error:

System.ArgumentException: Could not find the sitemap node with URL '/_layouts/WebAnalytics/WebAppSelection.aspx'.

This seems strange to me as we used to have an old customized master page and it didn’t have the same problem. It’s quite a common problem after some Google, but none of the mentioned solutions (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepoint2010setup/thread/2022cff0-e2cf-4702-bb2a-17dc91dd4247) really works for us.

Just a quick run down of our custom master page: we have 3 heavy customized navigation control: Global navigation, side navigation, as well as a footer (doormat) navigation.
