Yes the message may be annoying, but it tells you that something with your Test
or SUT hasn't been done well.

No, that's just a way to go when testing a new version of your SUT where
components have changed heavily (even there classes may have changed) and you
need to update the component info stored in qftestJUI. This isn't relevant for
your problem.

The first thing to check is, if the component you are waiting for is really
there at the time when qftestJUI tries to access it. Take a look at the run-log
(available from the Run menu), jump to the error position and check the
screenshot stored there showing the situation when the exception occured.  It
may be a timing issue, so you need wait for a longer period of time before
doing the action which is currently leading to the error.

You need to understand what exactly happens within your test-run. The debbugger
may help stepping through it. The tutorial describes how to use it.

Please try to find out a bit more yourself and if you aren't able to find a
solution I will gladly take a look (then I will need your test-suite
and a runlog of the failure.)
