Confirmed in current master. Seems to be a DAG (old depsgraph) issue?

This isn't really a dependency graph issue, for some reason spacedata.first is NULL in BKE_screen_visible_layers(). Not sure why and whether it's something what is never supposed to happen. But i can't reproduce the issue with own startup file and factory startup.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton), do you have any knowledge here?

Does this mean the issue will be resolved in the next version? If not, is there any way to fix my blend file so I can carry on working on it?

This will indeed be solved in a future version, might not be 2.79 since the fix is not entirely straightforward.

To fix the .blend file, you can open it with File > Open and Load UI unchecked, then save again.
