Unhandled null reference exception in il2cpp.exe preventing UWP build

When building a specific Unity project for UWP, IL2CPP fails with a Null Reference exception (see below for error details and stacktrace).

I've been using the project regularly for testing/debugging UI/Input, and this issue just recently came up after pulling trunk. So far I've only seen it with this specific Unity project and doesn't seem to occur with others. The Unity project is attached.

Error details:

Failed running C:\Projects\unity\build\WindowsEditor\Data\il2cpp/build/il2cpp.exe --convert-to-cpp --emit-null-checks --enable-array-bounds-check --dotnetprofile="unityaot" --map-file-parser="C:\Projects\unity\build\WindowsEditor\Data\Tools\MapFileParser\MapFileParser.exe" --directory="C:\Users\timke\Documents\Unity\UWPInputFieldBugRepro\Temp\StagingArea\Data\Managed" --generatedcppdir="C:\Users\timke\Documents\Unity\UWPInputFieldBugRepro\Temp\StagingArea\Il2CppOutputProject\Source\il2cppOutput"

stdout:
