Unmet Load Hours Troubleshoot measure failure

I've been attempting to run the 'Unmet Load Hours Troubleshoot' measure, but it keeps failing. I've already seen this answer and have edited my measure so that those lines are now updated. I get the following errors in the simulation run:

"Processing Reporting Measures.

Applying UnmetLoadHoursTroubleshooting

Result: Fail

Error: Optional not initialized

I've figured out how to fix the problem. It appears that the zone thermostat schedules needs to come from Ruleset Schedules and not Compact Schedules. I don't know why this works (I don't speak Ruby yet), but I suspect that it might have something to do with the measure looking for the thermostat schedule, but not finding it because it needs to be a Ruleset Schedule for some reason.

You sir are correct. There are a few lines such as #640 that get the model object as a Schedule:Ruleset...

defaultProfile = schedule.to_ScheduleRuleset.get.defaultDaySchedule
