You really need to use a debugger. I suspect that pMatrix is null. You
should check pointers for null before dereferencing them anyway.

I don't know _why_ it is null. Maybe that's a normal value, if there is
no "transformation matrix" set for the item, though I don't quite know
when that would be set.
