when the branding section is missing from config.ini.php, piwik generates mutliple screens full of errors/backtraces (due to objects in the config object not existing), this should be handled more gracefully, or at least generate a meaningful error message.
happened to me after an upgrade from 1.4 to 1.5.1. (not necessarily the upgrade processes' fault tho')
Keywords: branding logo

I tried replicate the issue (remove branding from global.ini.php or from config.ini.php) but I couldnt see error messages. Can you please explain how to reproduce the bug?

(In [5253]) Fixes #2684 Now displaying clean error message with probably explanation and suggestion on how to fix the problem (ie. reupload global.ini.php )

good work, thanks!
(i'd agree this is a somewhat obscure situation, but i see not much code is needed to handle it better)

btw, i as far as i can tell the root cause was that i tried to replace the config directory with a symlink to one outside the piwik directory (to make (manual) upgrading smoother), which got replaced with a blank new directory during the upgrade(?), and then put the link (to the non-upgraded copy) back.
i guess it'd be better to only link config.ini.php then...
